Over 65 guests were packed into Rhyl's Lifeboat Station to enjoy as part of the RNLI's Chip Supper campaign.

The fish and chips event, held on Friday October 19, was to raise funds for new RNLI crew kit or fuel for lifeboats.

Cllr Peter Prendergast toured the local area, and secured donations from chip shops including Les & Rita's, Wellington Rd, Rhyl; The Galleon, Tynewydd Rd Rhyl; The Town Fryer, Wellington Rd, Rhyl; and G & J Plaice, The Square, Kinmel Bay.

Guests, including mayors from Rhyl and Prestatyn, began arriving at the station, and the crew visited the chip shops and ensured all guests were fed by 7.15pm.

The crew, crew wives and fundraisers acted as waiters and waitresses to supply the food, complete with complimentary drinks and bread and butter.

Diners were also treated to a slideshow promoting the work of the Rhyl lifeboat station, including the efforts to raise funds for the new Shannon lifeboat, due to arrive in October 2019.

Souvenirs of rope work and framed knots were sold and raised nearly £90 for the Shannon Appeal.

Dave Simmons, Rhyl RNLI branch Chairman, gave a short speech, and guests enjoyed a short film of the rescues carried out by Rhyl lifeboat crews over the last few years.

Dave then thanked everyone for coming, and the event finished about 8.30pm. The lifeboat souvenir shop was also open, and did a roaring trade.

Coxswain Martin Jones said: "The supper was a tremendous success, and the money raised will go towards new crew kit, which is being provided to the station in the next few months.

"I would like to thank all the volunteers associated with the charity's station at Rhyl, for their fantastic efforts tonight."

Organisers are still calculating the final total which will be announced later.
