BEMBRIDGE Lifeboat Station hosted another successful Yellow Welly Week.

More than 2,500 visitors flocked to the boathouse for the event, with activities taking place throughout last week.

The event ­was held to support the RNLI's Respect the Water campaign, aimed at reducing the number of deaths at sea.

Activities were held in the boathouse and on the beach — including dressing up, storytelling, safety line throwing and welly wanging — and safety information was provided to visitors.

One of the younger visitors was lifeboat superfan Teddy Orford-Kemmish, aged four, of Shoreham. Teddy has visited 27 lifeboat stations around the country, and his bedroom is decorated in RNLI colours with pictures of lifeboats.

Almost 300 people watched the launch and demonstration of the all-weather Tamar lifeboat, Alfred Albert Williams, which was followed by hotdogs and drinks.
