THE FUN STARTS AT 1PM AT THE HERRING POND IN PORTSTEWART

DUCK DIVE

Don't Forget the Annual St Patrick' s Day Duck Dive at the Herring Pond in Portstewart. The fun starts at 1pm when the eejits will take to the water to raise funds for Portrush Lifeboat Station.
Early indications are that the weather will be good and the Two Portrush Lifeboats will be there to keep an eye on proceedings. This will be the first Duck Dive outing for the 'William Gordon Burr' as it was our replacement lifeboat that was on duty last year.

Thanks to all the organisers of the Duck Dive from all at Portrush Station...See you all on Tuesday 17th!
