On Saturday at the RNLI Lifeboat station in Tower Esplanade, the new Joel and April Grunnill lifeboat will be officially named.

Fantasy Island is holding a Grand Bonanza Extravaganza on the same day to celebrate the investment that has been taking place during the winter and visitors will enjoy a fireworks display in the evening.
