Win­ter dip planned

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS - By AN­DREA O’NEIL

Start tak­ing cold baths now – you’ll want to be well trained to with­stand icy wa­ters on June 17 when Plim­mer­ton’s an­nual mid­win­ter dip rolls around.

This year marks the 16th an­niver­sary of the pop­u­lar com­mu­nity event, which serves as a fundraiser for Plim­mer­ton Kinder­garten. Money col­lected would once again go to­wards spruc­ing up the kindy’s out­door play area, or­gan­iser Han­nah Hen­der­son said.

Last year the kindy raised $5500, which paid for a new slide and play­ground im­prove­ments.

The tide should be out for the dip, so there will be races along the beach, sand­cas­tle com­pe­ti­tions, raf­fles, sausage siz­zle and best-dressed prizes.

Water lovers will have an ex­cuse to stay in the water, as swim­ming races will also be held for the first time.

Plim­mer­ton mid-win­ter dip, Sun­day, June 17 at Kare­hana Bay beach. Reg­is­tra­tion at 11am, dip at noon. Gold coin do­na­tion.
