Lifeboat Fete, Saturday July 13th.

Jodi Fairbairn, daughter of Coxswain Gary Fairbairn, was crowned Dunbar Lifeboat Queen at the harbour's popular, family event on Saturday afternoon, 13th July. There was a quick shower of rain but the day was mainly 'fair'. Queen Jodi was joined by her Attendants Ellen Mackay and Ashley Arthur, Herald Sam Mailer and Flower Girl Mirren Ross. The children were selected as they have a family connection with the harbour. 

Everyone was delighted to see ex-RNLI lifeboat The Douglas Currie, a Solent-class lifeboat which travelled all the way from Fraserburgh, an 11 hour transit, and stayed over Friday night. She sat alongside our Trent in the harbour, both open for tours, providing an excellent opportunity to see, and compare, lifeboat equipment past and present.

There was a stall from EDF Renewables, showcasing the future Neart Na Gaoithe (NnG) offshore wind farm project, plus many food and fun stalls, children's activities, and a performance from the local 'Strictly' dancers. See you all next year!!!!
