PICTURE GALLERY: Boxing Day dip in Flamborough

Waiting for Video...
 
 

The Flamborough Boxing Day Dip grew once more as a part of the village’s annual calendar as more than 150 people came out to watch dozens of dippers brave the icey waters of the North Sea.

Organisers hope that the dip will raise more than £1,000 for Flamborough pre-school.

This year a former Flamborough woman travelled from the other side of the globe to take part, Hannah Emmerson, 22, has lived in Australia for the last two years but the village and the Pre-School remain close to her heart.

Hannah and her brother and sister have all attended the Pre-School, and whenever she’s back for Christmas, the Boxing Day dip is something she likes take part in.

Her partner, on his first visit to the UK, also braved the icey waves.

Once again, the traditional Flamborough Longsword Dancers supported the event, performing in aid of local charities.

The Longsword Dancer’s tour began at the Rose and Crown pub in High Street, went along to the Seabirds pub in Tower Street, the Victoria Club in Chapel Street and finished at The Royal Dog and Duck.

Organisers thanked Flamborough RNLI for being on stand-by during the dip, and Gerry Ellis and his staff at the Rose and Crown.

Pictures were taken by photographer Mike Hopps.
