VIDEO GALLERY: Selsey Lifeboat Tug of War

IT WAS war at Lifeboat Green, as teams battled it out to be the tug-of-war champion.

In the men’s competition, The Fisherman’s Joy, The Lifeboat Inn Luggers, Stonecold Training and the Lifeboat crew battled it out.

Stonecold Training won the Observer cup which is given out to winners each year.

In the ladies’ competition, Check-a-trade Ladies were up against a team cobbled together at the event, the Selsey Birds, including Observer reporter Bex Bastable. The Selsey Birds ended up victorious.

There was also a competition between the local Beavers and Scouts clubs, joined by children in the audience, and a tug between the Appledram Centre and the Aldingbourne Centre.

The night finished with spectacular fireworks on the seafront.
