Chair's Charity Swim
Good Friday – warm and sunny for me to go into the sea at Pendine for a charity swim.
I had vowed to take part in the traditional Walrus Dip at Cefn Sidan beach on Boxing Day, but the event was cancelled due to Covid restrictions.
Instead, I took to the waves at Pendine beach during a chilly Easter weekend.
I am fundraising for two charities close to my heart, Prostate Cancer and St Peter’s Church in Llanybydder.
As well as the swim, I am also undertaking a sponsored walk and have so far walked over 60 miles.
It has been a difficult year for so many people and I have deeply regretted being unable to undertake the usual duties of Chair, meeting as many Carmarthenshire residents and groups as possible over the year. I am so pleased to have been able to do a seaside swim instead of the Walrus Dip which is an important date in the civic calendar.
