Organisers of Charmouth’s traditional Christmas Day swim are hoping to attract more hardy bathers in ‘weird and wonderful’ costumes again this year.

The event raises around £1,000 for the RNLI, and sponsors, the Royal Oak, will be providing warm drinks for the swimmers. Fancy dress is not compulsory. Entrants should arrive at 10.30am, for an 11am start.
