Events & Fundraising


The sun is usually out and lots of people attend our annual Lifeboat Day and Fete. Midday and it all starts with hundreds of people turning out to support the station – having fun, learning more about the RNLI, listening to live music, playing games, eating and being merry.

Last year from 2pm the displays started with the East Anglian Working Newfoundland dogs, then a display by Cromer Lifeboat, Lester, which joined Happisburgh’s Atlantic 85, Howard Bell, which arrived in May last year, and D Class, Spirit of Berkhamstead, which has been on station since 2003 and since replaced by a new D Class, Russell Pickering.

The fun carried on after the displays with the hog roast, bar and music on tap until 6pm.

The Station would like to thank all our supporters, volunteers and local companies and organisations for making the last years day a great success, raising £8081.48 on the day with more following the event, which makes it our most successful day to date.

All the money goes to help us Save Lives at Sea. This year’s Lifeboat Day will be Sunday 5th August 2018; please make a note in your diaries. We look forward to seeing you all again this year! To get involved or make a donation at any time of the year please email the station on
