With just 24 days to go to our annual Lifeboat day on the 16th of July, preparations are already underway on making the day a huge success.
As always Dunbar Grammar School had the big job of deciding who this years lifeboat queen would be. Each year the School asks the pupils to pick someone who has a connection with either the fishing community or Dunbar lifeboat. This is the same process for Dunbar Primary School as well who have to pick two attendants to be part of the big day. To complete the lineup a herald and flower girl are also picked from either family of the lifeboat crew or the fishing community within Dunbar.
We are happy to announce the line up for Dunbar Lifeboat Day 2016
Dunbar lifeboat Queen: Joanna McPhillips
Attendants: Jodi Fairbairn & Ruby-Sky Forrester
Herald: Lee Courtney
Flower girl: Ava Crowe
The Queen will also be invited to do a station visit ahead of the gala day to have a look around and be introduced to full time coxswain Gary Fairbairn and station mechanic Gipper Ainslie. The inshore lifeboat along with its crew and crew from the all weather lifeboat will also be there to say hello.
Remember to invite all the family for a fun packed day out!
