Thousands expected for lifeboat day
DRAMATIC maritime displays are expected to be watched by thousands during Clevedon Pier’s lifeboat day.
To be held on July 15 from 11am-5.30pm, the event will include a hovercraft display, a visit from The Matthew ship and, subject to availability, an air sea rescue demonstration.
Proceeds from the event will be split between funding the pier’s new visitor centre and the Portishead and Bristol Lifeboat Trust.
As well as activities on the water, there will be live music and numerous stalls.
Last year’s lifeboat day attracted more than 3,500 visitors to Clevedon’s pier and it is hoped this year’s will be even more successful.
