Swimmers take to the sea to clear their heads

Masses of swimmers took to the harbour to clear their heads after the CS&PF dinner

After a late evening at the White Horse pub, many swimmers needed to clear their heads with a bracing swim in the harbour, the morning after the CS&PF dinner.

Much splashing and laughing was had by all, and a small amount of swimming.

We were pleased to see the Dover Mayor (Cllr Pamela Brivio and her husband Dave) came to watch.
