THE Red Arrows will appear at Lyme Regis Lifeboat Week, it has been confirmed.

Organisers from the Lyme Regis and Charmouth RNLI Guild remained hopeful that the aerobatic team would come this year after it was revealed in February it could be scrapped by the Government in the next round of defence cuts.

But the Guild confirmed today that the week will start on Friday, July 26 with an appearance from the Arrows, subject to health and safety and conditions.

The time is to be confirmed.

The Guild is still awaiting confirmation that the RAF Falcons will be appearing.
