Skills displayed at Berwick lifeboat fete
Despite the rain and chill, the annual Berwick lifeboat fete at Carr Rock, Spittal, attracted a healthy turnout on Sunday.
The highlight was the visit of a Coastguard helicopter which accompanied the Berwick and Eyemouth lifeboats in a spectacular display.
Unfortunately, the helicopter was unable to perform a winch rescue drill due to the weather conditions, a lack of wind to blame.
However, the lifeboat crews performed a series of exercises to demonstrate their skills, while fun trips were offered by Eyemouth RIB trips.
Back on dry land, there was fun to be had in a tug-of-war contest between the Berwick and Eyemouth crews with the visitors taking the honours.

There was also live music, refreshments and a number of stalls to take in, with valuable funds being raised for the RNLI.
Meanwhile, lifeboat crewman Rense Bell recently received his 20-year long-service badge from coxswain Ally Laing. By coincidence, his daughter Faye had her induction on the same evening.
