ANGLE RNLI will be celebrating its 150th birthday in style on Saturday (August 11), when veteran lifeboats will be on parade at the traditional open day in tribute to the historic station established in 1868.

The open day runs from 11am to 3pm. Angle Regatta is also being held that day and at 6pm the all-weather lifeboat will be launching to lead a parade of veteran lifeboats into Angle Bay to the delight of the crowds, who will be lining the shore outside the Old Point House Inn.

Also in the line-up will be the Liverpool class lifeboat, The Chieftain, which was built in 1948 and was stationed at Barmouth from 1949 to 1982.

Visitors to the open day will have the opportunity to meet Angle lifeboat volunteers, tour the £1.2m boathouse and see the all-weather and inshore lifeboats.

RNLI souvenirs will be on sale, there will be a cake stall, activities for children and various competitions. Volunteer crew members will operate a barbecue near the entrance to the station and refreshments will be served in the crewroom, with its spectacular views over the Milford Haven Waterway.

To celebrate the station’s 150th anniversary, there will also be three days of music at the nearby Old Point House Inn.

On Friday (August 10), from 6.30pm, After the Fire will take the stage and will also be appearing the following evening from 6.30pm.

Abba tribute band, Dream Abba, will be the top attraction on Saturday evening (August 11) from 7.30pm to 9.45pm.

On Sunday afternoon (August 12), from 3pm, Dunvant Male Voice Choir will be appearing. They will be followed at 5pm by singer Becky James and at 6.30pm by Candy Skulls. Throughout the three days, Bristol Dave will also be entertaining.

Visitors to the open day and the Old Point House Inn are reminded that between 6pm and 8pm on Saturday (August 11) the high tide may make the shore road inaccessible for a time.
