Family open day

Have you ever wondered what our Rural Task Force do? Are you interested in the work of the RNLI? Do you have children who might be interested in learning more about the police? If so, we have exciting news for you!

Our Rural Task Force are teaming up with colleagues at the Bridlington RNLI, and other partners to host a fun filled, informative, open event on Friday 16 February, from 10am – 4pm at the Bridlington Lifeboat Station, and you are invited to attend. 

Come along to learn more about the work our Rural Task Force do, How they tackle rural crime and protect our communities, and you may even be lucky enough to test out some of the specialist kit they use!

As part of the day, our Rural Task Force team will be showcasing their powerful all-terrain vehicles as well as their imaging scopes, whilst also sharing information about how the team respond to, prevent and target rural crime. They will be joined by colleagues from the Bridlington Neighbourhood Policing Team who will be on hand to discuss what work they are doing locally, answer any questions and offering advice to help you protect your property.

The local Bridlington RNLI team will be having an ‘open station day’ showcasing their new Shannon Class lifeboat for all to see, as they celebrate their 200th year anniversary!

Humberside Fire and Rescue Service will also be on hand to show some of the equipment they use when helping the police, along with the Coastguard and the RSPCA who will be hosting plenty of exciting and informative activities too!

Ahead of the event, Inspector Jon Powell from our Rural Task Force said: “The day is all about showcasing the team. Talking to our local, rural and farming communities, about the work our teams do every day to keep our area safe. I also want to share the difference the team has made to our force area rurally and the significant successes that we have seen from the work that has already been done.”

“We want people to come along, have fun and learn a bit more about policing and rural policing. We’re hoping to provide a really fantastic opportunity for the public to come see exactly what the Rural Task Force are doing and how we are doing it, as well as the chance to see the equipment that we work with day to day.”


Water Safety and Fundraising Officer Bob Taylor, from the Bridlington RNLI team said: “We are pleased to be hosting the Rural Task Force & Partner Agencies for an open day at Bridlington Lifeboats Station, we have been trying to pull one of these together for a while, working in conjunction with Humberside Police we have finally made it happen.”
