After a successful Santa Dash event at the weekend, East Coast Hospice are calling the brave and bold to sign up to their New Year’s Day Dip event at 10.30am behind the Pier Hotel ,Gorleston.

The saying goes “Out with the old and in with the new”, so this year dare to be different and go into the “Cold and out with a brew”, sponsored by the Pier Hotel, Gorleston, where there will be refreshments afterwards for those who have taken part.

Let the fun and the splashing begin for probably the freshest start you could have to 2018!

If you are up for a challenge they are asking you to dress up and be an East Coast Dipper!

Over 16’s only and optional fancy dress. Registration £7 at or you can sign up on the day (subject to participant availability) from 9am with the dip starting at 10.30am.
