Dip for Dementia


The dip for dementia will take place on Friday the 7th of June at 6pm.  Tide permitting we will meet at the Ice Cream Kiosk to the left of Teignmouth Pier (opposite Channel view Drs surgery). The location may change to the back beach (Blue Hut) depending on the conditions on the day.

There will be a short safety briefing before the dip commences.

The dip will be supported by volunteers from Healthscape CIC, who are trained in tube rescue and beach first aid.

You can sign up using this form:
