Thanks to Hemsby independent lifeboat he will be “sailing” through the streets spreading festive cheer.

And aiding him on his journey will be his crew of life-saving helpers, ready to respond to an emergency at sea or on the Broads at any time of the day or night, and guaranteeing Santa will get through whatever the weather.
