BRIDLINGTON’S Lifeboat crew and station management are hoping for another successful flag day this 

Last year’s flag day was a big success and the crews hope it can be repeated this year.

Steve Kinroy, lifeboat operations 
manager at Bridlington, said: “Last year we were concerned about fund-raising due to the current climate, which makes collecting even harder, but the support we recieved from the town and surrounding area was great.

“As always the station’s lifeboats, Marine Engineer and Windsor Spirit, will be on show for young and old to look at.”

As well as the lifeboats, there will be a tombola, bookstalls, cake and plant stalls and games on the beach including beat the goal keeper, and throwing a lifeboat wellie.

Lifeguards and other emergency services have been invited to attend.

The event will be held on the South Promenade in front of the inshore lifeboat house from 10am-4pm, with Bridlington Mayor Coun Michael Charlsworth as well as town crier David Hinde meeting the coxswain and crews at noon.

Organisers said they are greatful to Peter Smurthwaite from Bridlington Town Football Club who gave permission for some of the lifeboat crew to collect at half time during Saturday’s match at Queensgate when Town took on Hull City.
