The lifeboat covers the Menai Straits area between Anglesey and the North Wales mainland, and is one of the busiest in Wales. Celebrating over 100 years as a lifeboat station, the crew have been honoured with 12 awards.
Beaumaris Lifeboat is one of seven Lifeboats originally provided by the viewers of the Blue Peter Television Programme. The latest Lifeboat at the station is the Atlantic 85 inshore lifeboat, the most advanced inshore lifeboat ever produced by the RNLI which can reach speeds of up to 35 knots and features state-of-the-art technology to enhance its lifesaving capabilities.
Beaumaris Lifeboat Open Day cancelled whilst initially, it was postponed to the 11th September to coincide with the Beaumaris Food Festival. However, as the Food Festival has several stalls within the same area it would be unsuitable to set up alongside the event without causing safety concerns for the public.
On the 11th September the Lifeboat will be on display outside the Lifeboat Station to support the Food Festival as an additional attraction. Whilst within the Boathouse, tea and coffee will be served together with a tombola stall.
