People in Portishead learned more about the hard work of life-saving volunteers at the weekend.
Portishead RNLI held an open day at the lifeboat station, in Eastcliff, on Sunday.
Families flocked to the event to enjoy an afternoon of fun in the sun.
People were able to sit at the wheel of a lifeboat, My Lady Anne, and learn more about the hard work of unsung heroes saving lives at sea.
The volunteers shared stories of their missions.
Guests were also able to get their hands on some of the rescue kit used by the RNLI, as the organisation sought to raise awareness of the dangers of North Somerset's coastline.
The day was rounded off with a top-quality musical performance from the Barnacle Buoys, which proved popular with those in attendance.
