Sandcastle competition this month

Visitors to the Isle of Wight in the coming weeks might like to check out a local event that is sure to be fun for all the family.

The Bill West's Absent Friends Sandcastle Competition is set to take place on Appley Beach in Ryde on April 28th and will see dozens of sandcastles being constructed by visitors, with the best winning a prize.

Organised in support of local charity Earl Mountbatten Hospice, a suggested donation of £2 has been put forward for entry, although visitors wishing to take part can give as much as they feel comfortable with.

Visitors are also encouraged to wear their silliest hats when taking part.

Elsewhere, those bitten by the sandcastle-building bug might also like to check out annual Yaverland Sandcastle Competition that will be held on August 13th.

It also promises to be a great day out for the family, with the event kicking off at 10:30 BST.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801577919-ADNFCR
