RNLI-Angle-set-to-launch-open-day

Byline: RNLI Angle lifeboat station will be welcoming visitors to its open day on Saturday (August 9), with an opportunity to meet crew members, tour the £1.2m boathouse and see the all weather and inshore lifeboats.
Page Content: The £2.6m all weather state-of-the art Tamar class lifeboat now at the station is the Peter and Lesley-Jane Nicholson, which is on relief duty there while the station’s Tamar Mark Mason undergoes modifications.

Also on view will be the D class inshore lifeboat Richard John Talbot Hillier.

The open day runs from 12noon to 4pm and the all weather lifeboat will be launching at about 6pm. It promises to be an action-packed occasion, as this year’s open day coincides with Angle Regatta.

It is expected that a number of ex-RNLI lifeboats will be heading for the station to celebrate the open day. These include the station’s former Watson class lifeboat Richard Vernon and Mary Garforth of Leeds, which served at Angle from 1957 to 1987. She is now privately owned and renamed Spirit of Angle.

An ex RNLI Tyne class lifeboat is also scheduled to visit. She is the same class as the station’s former lifeboat The Lady Rank, which served at Angle from 1987 to 2008.

The station was established in 1868 with the first lifeboat Katherine donated by the Bradford philanthropist Titus Salt.
