Time we were visiting the lifeboat was launched. Very well organised. The lifeboat soon set off on its mission, with plenty of helpers. Very impressed.

You can see the boat and there’s a little shop attached. Worth a visit if you are passing. And it’s a good cause.

We often visit Criccieth, but since visiting last year my little boy is obsessed with boats. It was lovely to be able to take him in to see the lifeboat & explain what happens etc. The new build looks good too.
