AS if we needed any reminder that Christmas is only around the corner, an Ipswich watersports club is busy organising its annual festive event – in which it wants YOU to take part.

The Ipswich Snorkel Club is once again getting set to host the Boxing Day 'around the pier swim' and is on the hunt for anyone with the courage to take part.

Carl Studd, who is helping to organise this year's event, said: "It might seem a long way off but the days leading up to Christmas are going to pass by really quickly now and we want to start getting a list of names together.

"It's a great event because everyone gets a great adrenaline kick out of taking part, and we always have a lot of people turning up to wish us well."

If you would like to take part in this year's swim you can call Carl on Ipswich 424641.
