Swimmers are invited to brave the icy waters while celebrating an upper Calder Valley tradition this weekend.

Todmorden Amateur Swimming Club members, sponsored by Todmorden Lions, host their New Year Swim at Lee Dam, in Lumbutts village above Todmorden, on Sunday, January 12, where competitors will aim to retrieve a wooden trophy thrown into the water - or just have some fun, in chilly surroundings!

Registration for the event, which dates back more than 50 years, is at 1.30pm before the event starts at 2pm.
