Smugglers and pirates recruited to help service

A volunteer rescue crew is hosting its annual charity fund-raiser with an action-packed ‘smugglers and pirates’ beer evening.

Boulmer Volunteer Rescue Service’s fancy dress-themed event holds extra significance this year, coming in the wake of a break-in at the village’s boat house in May which saw the loss of a laptop, ceiling projector and bottles of alcohol.

Starting at 6pm on Saturday August 24, it promises to be bigger and better than ever.

Entertainment includes a lifeboat display, tug-of-war, water zorbing and an assortment of other fun-filled games.

Food and drinks are available throughout the night in the form of freshly-cooked curry and a bar.

There will also be an additional bar serving locally-produced real ales.

Tickets include entry and food and cost £7.50 per adult, £3.75 per child and £20 for two adults and two children.
