It was a brrrrrrrisk start to 2018 for a group of intrepid swimmers in Broadstairs.
Dozens of brave participants for a New Year’s Day dip gathered at the Neptune Hall pub in Harbour Street before walking down to the beach and taking a plunge into the chilly water.
The organiser of the dip, Neptune Hall landlady Jill Connell, wasn’t among those taking part but she provided very welcome hot food for those emerging from the waves.

Dippers took to the sea to raise funds for Children’s Liver Disease Foundation (CLDF).
Alison Taylor, chief cxecutive of CLDF, saidd: “We are the only UK charity dedicated to fighting all forms of childhood liver disease which we do by providing information, emotional support, funds for research and a voice for all those affected.
"Over the years Jill and her husband Kenny have raised over £50,000 by putting on this event.
"We are truly grateful to them for all their hard work."
