This Sunday, 26th August is this year’s Stonehaven Harbour Festival.
Come along and see Stonehaven RNLI Lifeboat crew doing demonstrations in the harbour. The fundraising ladies will have tea and coffee, scones and pancakes in the boat shed and there will be kids games and souvenirs for sale on the pier. There is also the Raft Race and Stormy Stan will be mingling with the visitors on the pier. We’re all hoping for a sunny day so pop down and say hello.
