Boxing Day Dip

Details

Get ‘into the groove’ on Boxing day in Flamborough - South Landing

Disco fever hits South Landing in Flamborough this year as the 80’s arrives in style on Boxing Day.

Dippers are encouraged to don their 80’s disco outfits and put on their dancing shoes to ‘walk like an Egyptian’ into the fresh sea. Of course, like every year, dressing up is not compulsory but guaranteed to be a lot more fun if you ‘pump up the jam’ ‘Relax’ and go ‘footloose’ into Boxing Day celebrations.

Year on year support for the dip has increased and it is fast becoming the biggest dip on the East Coast. All monies raised at the dip ensure that the Flamborough pre-school can enhance the learning environment and experience for its children during term time. Relying on sponsorship isn’t always easy. However, the funds go a long way, with every penny invested back into the Children.

William Traves, Committee Chairperson at the Pre-school and one of the organisers of the event said,
The dip will commence at 10.45am, South Landing with the fun and festivities moving into the village. Once in the village, spectators and dippers will be met by the junior and senior Longsword Dancers, this has fast become a Boxing Day tradition in Flamborough! The dancers will perform from noon with the grand finale in Dog and Duck Square at 3pm.

Everyone, as always, is welcome to take part in what is a fantastic family day experience.

All those that fancy a dip, please collect your sponsorship forms from the Pre-school or The old Tuck Shop, Flamborough well in advance.

So ‘Pump up the volume’ put your ‘Goody Two Shoes’ on and ‘Let’s Dance’ before ‘Another Boxing Day bites the dust’ – Celebrate good times come on!
