THE Beaumaris RNLI volunteer crew were called to help a boat with engine failure at Dinas Dinlle, near Caernarfon.

The town's lifeboat Annette Mary Liddington was launched to a vessel with two occupants at 6.30pm, on Saturday (June 22).

According to a Beaumaris RNLI spokesman: "Upon arrival it became apparent that the craft with her two adult occupants had run out of fuel, it was decided to tow the boat to a recovery point in the Menai Straits.

"The motor boat was towed to a location known as Ty Calch where facilities were available to recover the vessel."

The lifeboat was then released from service, and returned to the lifeboat station at Beaumaris at 8.30pm.

The vessel was refuelled and prepared for her next service which came at 1.40 am next morning, followed by a further service launch at 8.08pm that evening.

The team at Beaumaris is looking to recruit more volunteers, including lifeboat boat crew members, shore crew and launch vehicle drivers, launching authorities as well as shop volunteers.

An open day is being held at Beaumaris lifeboat station from 11-4pm, on Saturday, July 20.

There will be stallholders and subject to operational requirements a display by the lifeboat.
