LIFEBOAT LAUNCHES 2015
Saturday January 24th 18:00hrs
Dog reunited with owner
Teignmouth lifeboat launched at the request of HM Coastguard to investigate a report from a dog owner that their dog had chased some wildlife and disappeared over a clifftop near Ansteys Cove. The Coastguard fearful that the owner might attempt to rescue the dog themselves and endanger their own life, requested the the lifeboat to attend. The lifeboat crew located the dog alive and well and took the dog to the waiting owner and Coastguards on the beach nearby.
Walk-in-the-Sea Boxing Day 2014
The Walk in the Sea on Boxing Day was "amazing".
The event went incredibly well despite a high tide and the weather which started off as drizzle but by the time of the entry into the sea was continuous heavy rain.
This didn't seem to deter or dampen the spirits of the participants, or the spectators, or in fact the volunteers. Among the dippers were Teignmouth shanty singers the Back Beach Boyz who performed a sing-song before they ran into the water with their Hawaiian shirts on and other fancy dress outfits were terrific with people dressed as penguins, Christmas presents, postage stamps, cricketers, a water polo team, fairies and assorted men in ladies underwear etc. etc.
Most estimates of attendance were in the region of 430 dippers and about 2400 spectators on the promenade which is on a par, if not better than previous years when the weather had been much kinder.
The Registration Desk signed up 222 participants and took £1010.00 in the box, and the Bucket Collection among the spectators made £1181.79, a total raised on the day of £2191.79. Sponsorship money tends to roll in in the New Year.
So well done to all volunteers, Fundraisers and Crew, and thank you for helping to make this event another success.
Thanks also to all supporters who braved the elements to raise funds for Teignmouth RNLI.
