Families enjoy fun in the sun at Anstruther

The crowds were out in force for two open days in Anstruther over the weekend.

At the Scottish Fisheries Museum, on the theme of ‘International’ to celebrate the upcoming Commonwealth Games, there was a flag parade, music in the courtyard and arts and crafts.

The famous Reaper also made an appearance, brining Fisher Lad and Lass Billy Lewis and Jessica Wilson to shore.

Simon Hayhow from the museum said: “It was a great success and the day was good for us and the Lifeboat crew. We had a lot of people through and got some really good feedback.”

Down at the lifeboat shed, people had the chance to speak to staff and view the lifeboats and the new RNLI Flood Rescue Vehicles.

Thanks to the generosity of visitors, the lifeboat team raised over £1000 from donations, facepainting and the famous burger stall.

John Murray, Anstruther Lifeboats operations manager, said: “I am absolutely delighted and offer my heartfelt thanks to all who supported our Open Day and Flag Day Street Collections.

“Fantastic sums of money are achieved by my team at Anstruther due solely to their never flagging efforts to promote the Lifeboat Service and the generosity of the people who come from near and far to support us. You have my assurance that every last penny will be put to good use saving lives at sea”.
