A collaborative event with Bee Sober and Active Friends- Walk, Cold water swim, and Dine at Gaddings Dam then the Shepard's Rest
Saturday 8th October
Members, non-members, Sober and Sober Curious all welcome
It is a good walk, about a mile walk to the location from the meeting point/car park and it’s up a hill. So make sure you have your walking boots on
We will go for a walk dip/swim/paddle then enjoy a chat and something to eat afterward at The Shephard's Rest.
There’ll be no pressure to actually swim, if you haven't done it before we can confirm that it's worth being brave for, and the after-effects are bloody amazing!
Essential items to bring:
Swimsuit, towel, plastic bag, or dry bag for wet items. Wooly hat, hot drink, swim shoes (shoes are a must for this particular dip).
Not essential but nice to have:
hot water bottle, if you do have a wetsuit feel free to use it, swim gloves, etc.

Unfortunately, we won’t be able to wait for more than ten minutes and will set off on the walk by no later than 1.10pm.
To reserve your spot, simply click on the link below. Bee Sober and Active Friends are both non-profit communities, and because this event has proved to be so popular in the past we need to ensure that everyone has booked on via the website and read the T&C's before attending.
This means from now we will be asking for a £1 donation to secure your place. Your £1 will cover the cost of the booking system and any extra will go in the Bee Sober and Active Friends community pots so we can treat you to some good stuff throughout the year e.g. meditations and cake :)
Although this event is not strictly a sober event, please note that many people taking part may be in recovery or may not drink alcohol for personal, religious or cultural reasons. In collaboration with Active Friends we would like to offer a mutually safe space for everyone attending and therefore respectfully request that you do not drink alcohol on the day of attending the event and that you do not engage in glamorising conversations about alcohol.
