The dancers wear navy ganseys, white trousers and caps for their performances around the village.

The village's pre-school held its 10th Boxing Day Dip, which saw more than 50 people head into the water at South Landing, then the village's sword dancing teams took centre stage, performing around the village throughout the day, 40 years since the tradition was revived.
