The popular annual New Year’s Day Sponsored Swim will take place again in Carnlough Harbour with brave participants taking the plunge at 12noon sharp.

The 2014 event will be the 43rd of its kind and anyone wishing to take part will be made most welcome.

Last year 87 hardy souls took the plunge and the organisers are hopeful that both new and familiar faces will be taking part this time round in the swim which is in aid of the Ballymena Spina Bifida Association.

Among those hoping to take part once again will be New Year’s Day Swim stalwart Jeff Bell who has taken part in all of the past 42 swims.

Anyone wishing to participate in the 43rd fundraising event can obtain a sponsorship form by contacting Billy McIlroy at 12 Rathlin Drive. Ballymena or telephoning him on 02825644326 or 07718809314. Alternatively they can contact Myrtle Taylor at Ballymena Business Equipment c/O 73 Larne Street, Ballymena.
