Always With A Smile

Making the world a happier place has never been so much fun!

Mappleton Bridge Jump 2020

The Mappleton Bridge Jump, which takes place at midday on New Years Day, serves as the most extravagant way to cure a hangover from the night before... and it's easy to understand why!

The Mapleton Bridge Jump sees brave souls launching themselves from the parapet of Okeover Bridge into the chilly waters of the River Dove about 40 feet below.

In days gone by, the event would also encompass a boat race down the river, the bridge jump, a short distance swim and then a 500 yard dash to the finish line (at the Okeover Arms) to wait for their fellow jumpers.

It’s a charity fundraising event which dates back well over 20 years, and Always With A Smile has been a fixture at the event for over a decade!
