Volunteers at the Girvan RNLI are on the lookout for any old lifeboat kit or memorabilia. 

The station is helping to organise an upcoming exhibition, and would be interested in anything related to Girvan's lifeboat station from years gone by. 

A spokesperson said: "This could be old lifeboat crew kit, or anything that may be tucked in a loft, box or away for safekeeping or an heirloom.

"We would be particularly interested in anything you have relating to Girvan lifeboat station from the past.

"If so we would like to have a chat about an upcoming exhibition, drop us a message and let us know what you have even send us a photo and details, we would love to hear from you.

"We would also be particularly interested if anyone in the Ayrshire area or thereabouts has a model Shannon class lifeboat that could be part of the exhibition or any models of old Girvan lifeboats."
