Mersey Divers vs New Brighton Lifeboat Crew
There was a great turn out again for the annual new years days tug of war competition between the Mersey Divers and the New Brighton Lifeboat Crew. The good weather brought out a huge crowd to watch the very well organised lifeboat crew win again with another 2-0 victory. Although we had them worried this time on the first pull!
The Mayor of Wirral, Councillor Jeff Green, was there to officiate and present the Bob Grant memorial trophy to the well deserved winners.
A big thanks to the New Brighton Lifeboat Crew for organising the event as well as providing a great buffet afterwards. Thanks also to everyone from Mersey Divers who took part and came to support their side. Thanks to Vince Clegg for the photo’s.
The event is held to collect much needed donations to help support the RNLI. With the great weather and a large crowd over £1400 was raised for a great cause.
