Gallery: RNLI emergency services day
PUBLISHED: 08:00 18 July 2015
A GOOD crowd visited the RNLI’s annual emergency services day event, despite the inclement weather.
The event was held on the Beach Lawns in Weston on Sunday, and more than 40 new and vintage emergency service vehicles were in attendance.
As well as raising money for the RNLI’s new lifeboat station, it gave people the chance to ask questions about the vehicles and the people who use them.
Weston RNLI spokesman Glyn Hayes said: “The numbers were hugely down on last year but considering it was raining, there were an awful lot of people there.
“From an organisational standpoint it went well and everyone who should have turned up did, so there was a complete display on the lawns in the rain.”

The coastguard, RNLI plus search and rescue teams all attended to talk about their work and give demonstrations.
There were also a number of stalls.
Plans are already underway for next year’s event, but the date has not yet been confirmed.
