Kings & Queens of the Castle Crowned

Virtual Sandcastle Competition Winner

This year the Littlehampton Sandcastle Competition went virtual! Due to the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and following government advice on social distancing, we were unable to welcome you all onto Littlehampton beach as normal to battle it out to see who would be crowned king or queen of the competition.

Littlehampton has seen some beautiful weather this summer which gave the perfect opportunity to enjoy the sun and make a masterpiece. Children were set the task of creating a sandcastle or sand sculpture either on the beach using natural resources or at home using homemade or shop bought sand.

With many fantastic entries sent in our judge and Chair of the Community Resources Committee Councillor Billy Blanchard-Cooper was set the hard task of picking a winner. When speaking about the competition Cllr Billy Blanchard-Cooper said “The sandcastle competition is always such a brilliant event and I was glad that we could still get people involved this year. The children always show their talent and creativity and that definitely did not stop this year with a fantastic frog sculpture winning the competition.”

The winner of the competition was Tom Carter who created his wonderful sculpture on Littlehampton beach. The two runner ups were Bonnie; with her colourful creation using kinetic sand and Jacob Sked with a sandcastle fit for a king made on Littlehampton beach. Thank you to Harbour Park for supporting the event by providing prizes for the winner and runner ups to enjoy! We look forward to welcoming you back to the beach next year.
