They received a donation from the hall as a thank you for their performance and they have handed it over to the village’s RNLI crew.

On Boxing Day, the junior and senior longsword teams will be keeping up a proud tradition which has been part of Flamborough’s heritage for generations.

The seniors will be dancing at the White Horse in Bempton at 11.45am and at the Headlands Cafe near the lighthouse at 12.20pm.
