This is an image of a member of the Scarborough RNLI team who is looking out from the boathouse to the sea where the rest of his crew were training.
Due to the harsh conditions on the day most of the team were out training, to make the most of the conditions in which they often have to work to save the lives of hundreds of lives each year! 30% of the profit from this product will be paid in support of the RNLI.

Birstall, W Yorkshire - Unveiling statue of Joseph Priestly
Birstall, W Yorkshire - Unveiling the statue of Joseph Priestly on 12th October 1912 - at this point the unveiling party had adjourned to the Temperance Hall. Following the tragic assassination of the MP Jo Cox on 16th June 2016 (almost within sight of this statue), thousands of flowers were placed around it in remembrance. Priestly (1733-1804) was a 18th-century English theologian, dissenting clergyman, natural philosopher, chemist, educator, and Liberal political theorist who supported the French Revolution and campaigned for the legal and civic rights of Dissenters. In Jo Cox's humanitarian campaigning can almost been seen a distant echo of Priestly, making the recent spontaneous memorial very apt indeed. Date: 1912
