All the stops are being pulled out to ensure an action-packed Lyme Lifeboat Week 2018.

Members of the committee of the Lyme Regis and Charmouth RNLI Guild have already drawn up a provisional programme for the week - and it does not disappoint. 

Lifeboat week will take place between July 28 and August 3, and already confirmed for a return visit are the Red Devils, the British Army’s official parachute display team. They will be ‘dropping in’ during the afternoon of August 2.

The Guild – the local fundraising branch of the RNLI charity – is holding its annual meeting on April 11 at 7.30pm at Lyme Regis lifeboat station.

Guest speaker is long-serving lifeboat crew member Elliott Herbert, who is also a full time senior assessor trainer with the RNLI.

New members of the Guild are welcome to attend the meeting.

RNLI Flag Day this year is on June 2 when volunteer collectors will be on duty in Lyme Regis and Charmouth.
