New call for dippers

ARE you brave enough to brace the icy North Sea for next year’s New Year’s Day Dip?

Scarborough Lions are appealing for hardy souls to ignore the freezing temperatures and take part in the 20th annual event on Sunday, January 1.

The dip regularly attracts scores of entrants, in a range of different fancy dress guises - and raises thousands of pounds for various charities.

Sponsor forms are available from the Scarborough Evening News reception, in Aberdeen Walk, the Tourist Information Office, the Crown Tavern or by emailing
