On the last Friday of February, a few hundred primary school children from Kenton-On-Sea Primary school herded by parents and teachers alike, took to the beach, along with a fresh south westerly to walk to the end of the bay for a morning of fun and games.
Picnics and rock pool exploration's where a few octopuses, a sand shark and little fish were excitedly spotted and discovered by the children. This was followed with a talk by Verona Veltman who showed the terrible effects of plastic on sea birds and animals, particularly our own indigenous penguin, the Jackass Penguin. Numbers have fallen drastically due to over fishing and man-made waste related issues.
This was followed by a sand castle building competition, which truly was spectacular - making it virtually impossible to choose a winning group: several mermaids, a car, a few small villages and other interesting and imaginative creations fanned across the beach changing its landscape until the high tide came to claim the offerings.
A wonderful fun-filled morning was had by all!
