Sat 29 Jun Brantham Teddy Bear Parachute Jump


Registration for Teddy Bear parachutists will open at 9:30am on the day with the first jump taking place at 9:45am.

The event, sponsored by Colchester and Clacton Solicitors Thompson Smith and Puxon (TSP) since the first Teddies jumped, has the brave Teddy Bears, sporting parachutes designed and made by their owners, launching from the top of the church tower. Their descent to earth is timed, with the winner being the Bear who remains airborne the longest. Ideally, trainers will have made parachutes for their brave Bears before arriving to jump but there will be a stall at the event for last minute parachute manufacture if needed!

Children welcome
