A Wet Weekend

Last weekend was a double-dipper! It seems far more than a few days since then but the week has been incredibly busy with ‘life’ taking over. Saturday we did our usual 1030 plunge in what turned out to be the best weather of the weekend. A chilly wind and plenty of goosebumps were on display, along with so much kit we could have set up shop although it might have been more like a jumble sale with a wonderful array of mismatching clothes.

Sunday, a few of us did the Dip for Ben. A Star Wars theme and an event to raise money for a memorial for this young man was so well organised and fun that we were swept up in the moment for sure. We didn’t know Ben but showing solidarity for people and helping with an excellent fund raiser was lovely. We all need help now and again as about 30 swimmers and many more onlookers proved. An honour to take part.
