21st July 2019. The three-day Western Boat Show is at the heart of the Bristol Harbour Festival and the NCI Exhibition trailer took pride of place.
Volunteers from the National Coastwatch Institution stations at Lyme Bay, Nells Point, Porthcawl, St Albans Head, Skegness and Worms Head braved the rather wet weather and manned the NCI Exhibition trailer on Hannover Quay. By late Saturday, the weather had improved and so had the number of visitors and by Sunday there were hundreds of visitors to the trailer. Most visitors were impressed with the trailer and enjoyed finding out about what we do, with the map of our stations being of great interest.
This was a very popular event with many people visiting the trailer to help celebrate the charity’s 25th anniversary and discover more about the NCI.
The photograph shows the exhibition trailer during one of its few quieter moments.
