Hundreds of swimmers many in Santa hats and a few in striking fancy dress gathered on Exmouth and Budleigh beach on Christmas Day for the annual festive dip.Swimmers dashed down the shingle beach in Budleigh at 10am then at 11am in Exmouth and after a brief but rousing chorus of ‘We Wish You a Merry Christmas’ was sang to the thousands of spectators, sprinted the short distance to the sea. The amazing spectacles which seems to attract more people every year was all over in a few minutes with just the hardiest of souls rolling about in the chilly water just a little bit longer.
