Thousands of visitors turned out for the Lifeboat Open Day at Fraserburgh Harbour last Saturday.

The event began with a parade through the town centre to the Lifeboat Station, which was led by the RBL Pipe Band.

As well as entertainment from local bands and dance groups, the open day included the usual array of stalls, activities and refreshments.

Visitors were also able to take a tour of Fraserburgh Trent class Lifeboat ‘Willie and May Gall’, giving them the chance to meet the crew and ask questions.

Meanwhile, stalls included fish, strawberries and ice cream, a barbeque and hook a duck and there was also a bouncy castle, face painting, teas and home baking.

Lifeboat Coxswain Vic Sutherland said: “It went really well; it’s the first time that we’ve been back at the station after the construction work.

“People came from as far as Forres and Arbroath. The weather perhaps kept folk away but it was still a brilliant day.

“We’d like to thank the community very much for supporting us. Thank you as well to the crew who worked flat out last week in preparation for the event.”
