Alderman Swindell

Families of Alderman Swindell Primary School were invited to make Easter eggs for the Caister Lifeboat Easter Egg trail, held over the holiday weekend.

The school was pleased to participate as they support the Royal National Lifeboat Institution as they live so close to the sea but also love to get involved in community events.

The theme was the sea, lifeboats and a link with Alderman Swindell and the painted eggs results as always were imaginative and very creative.

The families were congratulated during the annual Easter Concert held on Tuesday, March 27.

Caister Lifeboat has been saving lives at sea since 1791.

Completely independent, they depend entirely on public donations to help them provide safety and rescue services to the countless vessels, crews and beach visitors to this area of the East Coast.

It has a museum recounting the many successful and daring rescues they have been involved with over the years.
