THE traditional Blessing of the Boats service in Lyme Regis is being held at 3pm on Sunday, May 22.
The service is hosted by the RNLI and as usual will be held at the lifeboat station on the Cobb.
The service welcomes everyone for hymns and prayers, conducted by the Reverend Chris Martin assisted by Alan Vian, from Lyme Regis Baptist Church.
The local gig club will provide an escort, leading the lifeboat crew out of the harbour to lay wreaths in bay, commemorating all those whop have been lost at sea.
Coastguards, Lyme Regis Sailing Club, the Sea School, the Boat Building Academy, the Power Boat Club and the Royal British Legion will all be represented.
