An event celebrating 200 years of a lifeboat charity is set to offer visitors a unique insight into the work of its lifesaving volunteers.

On August 4, Cromer RNLI is hosting a special event to commemorate the charity's bicentennial anniversary.

Open from 9 am, both lifeboat stations will welcome visitors, showcasing the charity's D class and Tamar class lifeboats.

A 200th commemorative service of thanksgiving is to be led by Rev William Warren, Vicar of Cromer, at 2 pm.

Throughout the day, attendees will have the chance to meet volunteer crew and other rescue services active in Cromer, including RNLI lifeguards, HM Coastguard and Coastwatch.

The event, free for all to attend, aims to raise funds to support the lifesaving work of the RNLI.

Activities on offer will include water safety education, sea demonstrations by the crew and RNLI lifeguards, and a meet-and-greet with Stormy Stan, the RNLI's mascot.

The day will conclude with music from the Sheringham Shantymen and brass band I dunno.
