Forthcoming Events for Newbiggin by the Sea

Newbiggin Lifeboat Day 2017 Events

Newbiggin's Blessing of the Lifeboat service this Sunday 23rd  July 2017 signals the countdown to next weekend's lifeboat day on Sunday 30th July 2017.

The very popular 'Blessing' will take place in the lifeboat station at 3.00pm with the service undertaken by Newbiggin lifeboat Chaplain Reverend Peter Sinclair. The lifeboat blessing is an established tradition in the lifeboat calendar here with the service very much as a preamble to next weekend's Lifeboat Day. Refreshments will be served in the lifeboat station after the blessing.

The following Sunday 30th  July 2017 sees Newbiggin Lifeboat Day getting underway at 1.30pm with a variety of stalls and attractions in and around the lifeboat station. There will be displays and demonstrations undertaken by the lifeboat subject to operational demands throughout the afternoon.

For those wishing to enjoy a selection of home made cakes and scones the boathouse will be serving these along with hot and cold drinks.

Throughout the afternoon Koast Radio will be broadcasting live on the adjacent sea front.

Please come along and give us your support for our major fundraising day. There is ample free parking at Church Point next to Newbiggin Maritime Centre and this promises to be a busy day for our coastal community with a variety of events taking place.
