Man Overboard Great fun was had at Rye Harbour Lifeboat Station in June. An Open Day attracted many people from the village and from Rye to look over the station.
The event, in aid of the Royal National Lifeboat Institute, raised a total of £155.50. This came from a Tombola, Bric a-brac table, children’s stall and a John Ryan Drawing.

The Hastings Lifeboat turned out to give support and several demonstrations of life-saving took place in the river in front of the Station Boathouse.
There were video films of rescues and other interesting aspects of the work of the Lifeboat. Plus refreshments in the Crew Room. Jai Gudgion (Helmsman), Hewart Hobbs and John Dernaw ‘rescue’ Steven Raysch from the Rother at Rye Harbour.
