Fresh from their success at the Sea Fest the volunteers of the Arbroath Ladies’ Lifeboat Guild already have their next event in sight.
On Sunday, September 15, the doors of the Lifeboat Shed will be thrown open to the public as part of Angus Council’s Doors Open initiative to encourage interest in community projects.
Visitors will have the chance to see the RNLB Bingo Lifeline which is standing in for the Lifeboat Inchcape while it is being overhauled at RNLI headquarters in Poole.
The Inshore Lifeboat Duncan Ferguson will also be on hand as will the volunteer crew, and the ladies of the guild will be there from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. to serve tea and coffee.
Following this on Wednesday, September 25, is the long awaited Arbroath Ladies’ Lifeboat Guild fashion show ‘Dress to Impress’ at the Meadowbank Inn.
On show will be designs from karenB of Broughty Ferry. Comperes for the evening are James Hutcheson and Danny Laverty.
Tickets are priced £10 and include a glass of wine and shortbread on arrival, between 7 and 7.30 p.m., and are available from the RNLI shop at the Lifeboat Shed, or from any guild member.
The next meeting of the Arbroath Ladies’ Lifeboat Guild will take place at 7 p.m. on Monday, August 19, in the Sea Cadet Hall on East Abbey Street.
