SUNDAY, 30 JULY – RNLI MUDEFORD FUN DAY
Bournemouth Echo Report & Photographs
- No entry free
- Family Fun Day at Mudeford Quay
- 11am – 5pm
- Raft Race at 1pm
Around ten thousand people attended this event, which took place in glorious weather. The raft race, some pictures below, was an appropriate part of the event, which was to raise funds for our lifeboats. The coastguard helicopter even made an appearance. There were food and refreshment stalls and plenty of exhibitions and activities on offer.
Mudeford RNLI Chairman, Simon Wyatt-Budd, said, “The raft race was brilliant with the fire crew and local businesses … It feels like people have been really generous in coming here to support the event … On Saturday night our team was setting up in the rain and we thought it wasn’t going to work, but the community has come out and got on our side … They understand the great work the RNLI does.”
