Boxing Day Dip

With about a hundred other people, many in fancy dress, I went for a for a Boxing Day ‘dip’ in the sea by the pier. My daughter and niece, dressed as Hawaiians, and fellow councillor Terry Falcão -dressed in a suit (well he is a solicitor!) braved the cold and went into the sea; all to raise money for the RNLI. Our MP Richard Younger-Ross judged the best fancy dress costume – Richard chose a couple dressed as Adam and Eve, though there wasn’t much of a costume to judge!
Then it was over to Shaldon to watch the three-legged race around the village, my nephew was taking part in the children’s race; a really great event with some amazing costumes. The three-legged racers have to drink a pint at each pub in the village, sadly there was one less stop this year, the popular Shipwrights’ Arms having closed.
