Anyone who wants to brave the North Sea on Whitby’s traditional Boxing Day dip can get their registration forms from the Print Shop in the Station.

Bob Steven’s, one of the organisers, wants people to know they only have to ‘dip’ no one is expected to swim.

On the day there are prizes for the best fancy dress, and Esk Valley Coaches supply buses for people to get changed in.

“We’ve been doing this for forty years now and we generally get in excess of a hundred dippers each year” said Bob.

Particiapnts are encouraged to raise money for charity, alternatively they can donate it to The Whitby District Lion’s Club.
