For the first time in about 15 years it was a bit of an unusual set up at Filey Lifeboat Day, as unfortunately the weather wasn’t kind to us (it absolutely bucketed it down with rain) but we didn’t let that spoil the proceedings or stop several portions of fish and chips!
A number of people had made the journey to Filey especially to raise money for the RNLI so we played in the lifeboat house itself of which we had a captive audience! Half time drinks were held in the Cobble Landing Bar for the band and a good time was had by all. Jamie Shaw modelled his brand new wellies which came in handy given the amount of water just outside the bar.
It really was a shame about the weather but hopefully Filey RNLI have raised sufficient funds through the army of dedicated volunteers & The Dearne Big Band & Singers. A big thank you to everyone who made the journey over and we look forward to a dry Filey Lifeboat Day next year!
