Tesco TV Boxing Day Swim Advert
You may have seen the recent TV adverts by Tesco featuring their re-creation of the Tenby Boxing Day swim.
The Tenby Boxing day ‘Big Red Swim’ celebrated it’s 40th birthday last year, despite the ice, snow and cold weather they still managed to attract an impressive 376 participants to the swim.
Following the release of the advert we asked the Visit Wales Facebook Page Fans for other Welsh Town and Food alliterative combinations.
Here are some of the 185 comments we received:
