Dunbar lifeboat station is holding a recruitment open day next weekend looking for new volunteers.

The idea of the event, on Sunday, June 14, from noon to 4pm, is to encourage people to find out more about how the station operates and highlight the volunteering opportunities.

Station fund raising convener Veronica Davies says anyone with an interest is most welcome to attend. She added: “It is amazing the number of people who are involved in one way or another in keeping the station going. There are volunteering opportunities on all levels from helping out for a few hours on a fete day to undergoing the intensive training offered by the RNLI and becoming a member of the crew. There will be existing volunteers on hand between 12 and 4pm on the Sunday to explain their roles and give an insight into how the station works.”

Dunbar RNLI lifeboat coxswain Gary Fairbairn and members of the crews of both the All Weather Lifeboat and the inshore boat will be on hand to tell potential volunteers about the training on offer.
