THE Great Yarmouth and Gorleston RNLI lifeboat shop opens its doors from today with souvenirs and gifts on sale seven days a week until October.

The shop, adjacent to the Riverside Road station, will be open daily from 10.30am to 4pm.

Virginia Fox, who helps manage the shop, said last year's trial Saturday openings proved to be a great success.

“Saturdays used to be changeover day in the holiday season but more people are visiting the area at weekends now. We are lucky to have so many volunteers willing to give some of their time to keep the shop open every day”.

Volunteers are pictured outside the shop.

Meanwhile, Yarmouth and Gorleston lifeboat will hold its annual meeting on April 20 at the Pier Hotel, Gorleston, at 7pm.
