Cold Water Swimming and Your Mental Health
Fantastic news that we at Chatter hear that thousands of you saw the first of the new series of ‘WE ARE ENGLAND’. This was on BBC One in January 2022.
Some of The Chatter Tribe and I feature in the Mental Health episode. We talked about the positive effects of cold water swimming for our wellbeing.

You can see the programme here on BBC iPlayer . (The above photo wasn’t the one used but was sent to us as a joke and is worthy of sticking on here!)
Inspiring and Motivating
I am really proud of both Kirk and Sarah-Jane. They took those first scary (but not really scary) steps into a flourishing love of cold water swimming.
The responses to the programme have been absolutely overwhelming. It has been described as ‘INSPIRING’ and ‘MOTIVATING’. In addition as
- ‘FULL OF JOY’
Hundreds have been so inspired by the joy in the programme. Furthermore they immediately dipped in the sea. In fact, the Strictly Team went into the sea at Tynemouth the day after the programme was first aired!
Many people have emailed regarding their particular health issues – the advice will always be for you to get advice from your GP or consultant.
I am excited to put so many of you future Chatterers on the waiting list for the next winter season in 2022/23.
