Seaton Beer and District Branch of the RNLI hosted the RNLI Connecting Our Communities Scroll recently.

The Scroll, which is currently touring all 19 RNLI Regions in the UK and Ireland, and it spent the afternoon in Beer on April 24.

It was safely transported by Carly the Ford E Van, adeptly driven by Emily Foster.

Upon arrival, the Scroll was signed by Wendy Cummins.

Festive spirits were abundant as rock cakes and a Celebration Cake fashioned by the volunteers were shared amongst attendees while a special poem to mark the occasion was recited.

The Scroll's travel continued the following day, April 25, to the Lyme Regis Lifeboat Station.

It will reach its final destination in October at the Isle of Man, the home of RNLI founder Sir William Hillary.

The Seaton Beer and District Branch continues to actively participate in RNLI initiatives.

This was notably demonstrated during the Mayday Appeal where the branch will host the Mayday Appeal Welly Walk on May 25.

Some people are also taking part in the Mayday Mile Challenge walking one or more miles including volunteer Brian Gravenor, who aimed to cover 200 miles.

Members of the public were also welcomed to join the effort, with those needing more information advised to email

In addition to the charity walk, the branch is also doing a Wellington Boot Poster competition open to all ages with the opportunity to win prizes kindly donated by local business Pecorama in Beer.

The RNLI Branch remains committed to its cause, participating in local events such as the screening of the film 'Blue' by the Beer Film Society on May 16.

This poignant film revolving around a father and son pair of fishermen was filmed locally in Beer.
