Take a New Year Plunge in the sea for Charity

A fancy dress dip in the balmy waters of Lyme Bay, 13.00 hours at the Cobb Beach, (gives you time to watch the duck race first) all for charity.  Everyone welcome, whether ‘dipping’ or contributing to our charity collection. “If you would like to raise funds for the chosen Rotary charities please feel free to use the sponsor form, where sponsors can sign up to Gift Aid if they wish. If you have your own charity which you wish to raise funds for then please go ahead. It would help our cause if you would just email us with the amount raised.   1pm  1st January from the Sandy Beach (time to watch the Duck Race First).  


Get Fossiling on the Jurassic Coast! Join one of Lyme Regis's famous fossil walks along this historic stretch of Dorset coast with Geologist Paddy Howe and Marine Biologist Chris Andrew. Some families return time and again to search with Paddy and Chris among the sand and rocks for fossils that have been washed down onto the beach after 190 million years. For adults and children alike, it’s an unforgettable experience.

Learn all about Mary Anning, the famous early paleontologist who once lived on the site of the museum and much more

Each walk is limited to 15 people per guide. Start times for walks vary according to the tides and take about three hours.
