Lifeboat Weekend, held in aid of the R.N.L.I July 2011

30th/31st July 2011. Keeping Clovelly's lifeboat on alert for emergencies round the clock takes effort and dedication.  Held in aid of the RNLI, Clovelly's Lifeboat Weekend is a popular celebration of the lifeboat and her crew. To get the fun going on Saturday there's a sponsored swim from Bucks Mills to Clovelly.  Sunday is packed with entertainments, including a hilarious race of men dressed as women, a tug-of-war and, of course, the ever popular slave auction in which young local men are 'sold' to the highest bidder to do their chores for a day.  And there are stalls galore.
