Hatherleigh Walruses 2006

The Hatherleigh Walruses presented “Walrus and Grommet's Weird Bunny" for their annual New Year's Day jump into the icy waters of the River Lew at the bridge. The Walruses raise money for local good causes and other projects. Participants first put on a little show on the river bank before jumping. They have to stay in the water (ideally immersed) for 5 minutes, folllowing which a nice bonfire and coffee are available to warm them up.

The sign says it all!

The team takes a bow before ...

Last one in buys the beers!

Come on in ... the water's lovely!

I take thee ... for better and for worse ...

5 minutes later!

Note to Walruses: if you'd like any of these shots printed up, let us know. All profits to a charity of your choice.
