Lyme Regis Sailing Club hosted a fish and chips evening, raising £261 for the local RNLI lifeboat.

Organised by keen members of the club, Paul and Gillian Bryant, and local fish and chip shop Herbie’s, more than 50 people tucked in to the traditional seaside favourite.

Mr Bryant said that he was delighted with how it all went, raising almost enough money to buy a crewman a new helmet.

“I thought it was a brilliant evening,” he said. “The sailing club was full with both junior and senior members.”

He said they were definitely planning to make it an annual event.

Lyme Regis Sailing Club, based at the harbour at the foot of Cobb Hill, is an active and open club to all who desire to sail or have an interest in the sport.
