Amble Lifeboat Fundraisers and crew will hold their annual 'Harbour Day' with various stalls, entertainment and a Lifeboat display from the crew.
This is a fantastic fun day for families and a great opportunity to support some of our local heros who fundraise for, and man the Amble Lifeboat as volunteers! This essential service can only continue through the efforts of these wonderful volunteers and the fantastic supporters who give so generously to the cause. Find out more

On 3rd July 1935, the RMS Mauretania passed Amble on her final journey north to the breakers in Rosyth. Amble town council sent a telegram to the ship stating, "Still the finest ship on the seas." To which Mauretania replied with, "Thank you to the last and kindliest port."
