A group of Rydal Colwyn Bay pupils visited a nearby lifeboat station ahead of a significant new development.
The Rydal Penrhos group travelled to Llandudno Lifeboat Station, where they took a look at the old building before work on a new £2.6 million facility begins next week.
The facility at Craig-y- Don will provide a home for the station’s new Shannon class all-weather lifeboat, which is expected to arrive at the station in 2017 and will replace the existing Mersey class lifeboat Andy Pearce.
Deputy Head Tim Cashell, said: “On behalf of the pupils of Rydal Penrhos School, please may I offer my thanks to the team and crew of the Lifeboat station for a fascinating and very enjoyable evening looking around the old station and getting excited about the new one and the new class of boat that will come with it.
“We wish them every success as the building of the new station begins and they can be assured of our continued support through fundraising on behalf of the Colwyn Bay.”
