Lifeboat weeks makes a splash

Portpatrick Lifeboat Week draws to a close this weekend with a programme of events from the crew members and community.

Watch a clifftop rescue demonstration from the playpak at 2pm by HM Coastguard followed at 3pm by a ward shore combined rescue exercise.

Then at 4pm, the return of the newfoundland dog rescue team cannot be missed.

The night is rounded off from 8pm with a BBQ, firework display, raffle, games and more until 10.30pm.

The Lifeboat week has been running since last weekend and has hosted a crab competition, sports, bingo, a raft race, quiz, music and much more.

The annual event has proven a hit yet again.
