St George of Formby declares Lifeboat Tea Room Open
Photographs by L Trollope, C Trollope & A Hobson.

ON Saturday, 24 April,2010, St Luke’s Life Boat Tea Room was officially opened by no less a figure than St George, who strode up the path from the Church,waving his mighty sword, having left his trusty steed elsewhere! Witnessing this arrival were the Mayor, Councillor Alf Doran and the Mayoress of Sefton, Cllr. Gillian Curthbertson and the Vicar, Harvie Nichol. Their short speeches, delivered to waiting members of the congregation, their friends, neighbours and well wishers, were lively and amusing.

Then followed, the dedication of the Tea Room for God’s service, to the Church and to the Community. A rocket, launched from the Guides’, newly created, Lifeboat flower bed, signalled the commencement of the serving of free refreshments to all, both inside and outside the Meeting Room. The Travelling People Folk Group provided lively entertainment throughout.

Also in attendance were representatives of Sefton Coastguards’ Lifeboat and Sefton Coastal Rangers. The event was well attended, and the newly equipped kitchen was kept busy during the day. Donations were collected for the RNLI.

The Tea Room will open every Friday and Saturday, between April and September, 10am to 4pm, providing. Tea, Coffee, Soft drinks, Soup and Cakes will be served, and supplemented only on Bank Holiday Mondays by bacon rolls.

Everyone welcome, and so too are well behaved dogs on a lead, water provided. Dogs were well represented at the opening, but all remained very amicable.
