GET your buckets and spades at the ready for a sandcastle competition at Compton Bay.
The National Trust is holding the sandcastle and sand sculpture competition on the beach below its Hanover Point car park today.
The competition is free to enter and open to everyone, though children must be accompanied. Registration opened at 10.30am.
There will be small prizes for the builders of the last castle standing following the high tide at 1pm and for the best sand sculpture using only items found on the beach.

Totally agree, sand castling isn't for kids for heavens sake!!!!

Holding this event on a Wednesday in the school holidays is utterly ridiculous. How are grown adults such as myself able to attend when we have jobs to go to? This is clearly ageist and represents a 'dumbing down' of the entire ethos behind sandcastling, as sandcastles built by adults, with shells and feathers on them for decoration are much better than those hopeless piles of sand made by toddlers.
