Staff at the Community Shop in Ore have received thanks from the MacBean and Bishop Trust for the support it has shown in helping to restore the two historic lifeboats which are now on display in the Old Town.

The staff of the Community Shop in Ore are pictured with Bev White, Pat and Tush Hamilton and the Mayor Judy Rogers outside of the Cyril and Lilian Bishop lifeboat under restoration.

Sid Saunders, who took the picture, said: “The shop has been friends of the vintage boats from the start and is one of the major sponsors of both the Priscilla MacBean and Cyril and Lilian Bishop lifeboats.”

Dee Day White said: “We are incredibly grateful to them for their continued support.”
