Isle of Wight holiday could feature sandcastle competition

Tourists taking Isle of Wight holidays this weekend could enter a charity sandcastle building competition during their time on the island.

In order to raise funds for the Earl Mountbatten Hospice, Appley Beach in Ryde will be hosting the event on Sunday (January 16th 2011).

The competition is set to get underway at 13:00 GMT and last for 90 minutes, with the winning entrants able to get their hands on a cash prize - £50 for the best adult and the same amount for the most impressive structure from an under-14.

Locals and those on Isle of Wight holidays who take part are encouraged to donate £2 to the hospice for their entry fee.

Visitors going to Ryde for the competition could also check out Appley Park's pitch and putt course or the Esplanade's marina during their time in the town, while High Street and Union Street are packed with shops full of interesting items.
