The Junior Wardens in Fraserburgh enjoyed a packed intinerary of activities recently.

As part of the week-long scheme, the young wardens paid a visit to the local Lifeboat Station where coxswain Vic Sutherland, deputy mechanic Iain Milne, and crew members John May and Lorne Noble showed the children how the lifeboat works.
