Swim Safe is coming to Anstruther! 🏊♂️
We're excited to announce that our RNLI lifeguards will be delivering FREE Swim Safe sessions in Anstruther on Sunday 24 July for kids aged 7-14.
Following a successful sunny day at Portobello Beach last weekend, we're looking forward to teaching more children about water safety in a fun and safe environment.
There's still plenty of spaces available throughout the day.
We have been selected as the 4th Launch a Memory (LAM) Lifeboat in the RNLI.
We are looking to have 10,000 names (5000 each side) on the new decals of our Shannon Class Lifeboat expected on station Q4 2023-Q1 2024.
We have had a great start and the concept has been warmly received both locally and at a national level.
It’s an absolute honour for us to have been selected. It will bring a huge amount of interest to the new station and through that boost our loyal supporter audience.

Anstruther Lifeboat Crew gave the local community a clean start to May by hosting a carwash in aid of raising funds for the new lifeboat shed. Their customers were treated to a burger while their cars went through the existing shed, which was turned into a car wash for the day.
After a fantastic turnout by local drivers, the crew raised a superb £1600 for the new shed which is due to house the replacement for the existing All Weather Lifeboat (ALB).
Anstruther Lifeboat would like to thank all those who turned out for the event.
