Newhaven MP Maria Caulfield joined hundreds of local residents at the Fort Road Recreation Ground for the annual RNLI Summer Fayre.
Others at the event included the Mayor of Newhaven Lesley Boniface, Mayor of Seaford Rodney Reed, Mayor of Peacehaven Isobel Sharkey, and Deputy Young of Seaford Erin Franklin.
The event included fun for all the family with birds of prey, a kids funfair, stalls, games, crafts, displays and music to raise money in aid of the RNLI Newhaven.
Maria Caulfield MP said “I was delighted to be able to join so many local people at the RNLI Summer Fayre in Newhaven. Our local lifeboat volunteers are real heroes risking their lives to save others at sea in the most perilous of conditions. It was clear from those at the event the high regard in which the community hold our local RNLI crews and I hope that the event was able to raise much needed funds for them and many thanks to Carol and the team for organising.”
