Stornoway RNLI is holding an open day a week Saturday.
It kicks off with a Family 5K run starts at 11am. Participants can run, jog, walk,
push a pram, or take the dog round the route which runs along the pier and Bayhead,
across the YM Bridge into Lews Castle Grounds, passed the Castle and Cuddy Point
to Sober Island then back again.
A prize is awarded to the family with the most members to complete the course.
The lifeboat station is open to the public at noon. People can also get to board
the RNLI lifeboat in the harbour.
The Stornoway Lifeboat Ladies Guild will be busy manning the teas, coffees and home-baking
tent, as well as a number of stalls and games to keep young and old entertained.
Tickets for the raffle are being sold this Friday in the Macaulay Road Co-op.
Highlight of the open day is a tug-of-war competition between Stornoway RNLI and
their counterparts in the local fire and coastguard services.
