Christmas Lights Reminder

Instead of a prize for the “best illuminated boat”, the South Bay Traders are making a £10 donation towards the Lifeboat Supercat Appeal for every illuminated boat in the harbour. They will also contribute £5 towards the cost of the electric for each illuminated boat. Sky TV and other media organizations will be in town to record the Bombardment Centenary on the 16th December, and in order to encourage boat owners, a generous Scarborian has offered to donate £500 to the Yacht Club annual RNLI cheque presentation fund, if we can display the illuminated boats from the 14th December onwards to show the harbour in a good light (pun intended) to the assembled media.
