40 Hardened Lifeguards, friends and families have braved the lovely warm morning to start Christmas the best way they can, with a refreshing dip.

The team of Lifeguards and lifesavers work hard all year round and we celebrate all together. This years theme was selected by the young lifesavers as children’s storybook characters and this years winning designed certificate was done by Aimee
Gordon, 12. The winner of the fancy dress is Aimee Kelly aged 11 as Charlottes Web

The sea temperature was a lovely warm 8oC And air temperature 11oC
