Hooray! It’s that time again. Get out your buckets and spades and put your thinking caps on! Our popular Friends of John Muir’s Birthplace Sand Sculpture Competition will take place this year on Saturday 11th August from 2pm – 4pm at the East Beach, Dunbar. Come along and make a sea creature … a mermaid … a boat … historic landmark etc. Let your imagination run wild!
‘Community’ judging and award of prizes will take place at 4pm. There will be adult, child and family/group categories and prizes will be awarded for the best sculpture in each category. Entry will be £2 per adult, £1 per child and £5 per family. This year will also see the introduction of a new category in memory of Susan Panton as she was the driving force behind all previous sand sculpture competitions and a special award to honour her dedication to Friends seems most fitting.
We trust that summer will truly have arrived by August, but if the weather is poor on the day, please phone John Muir’s Birthplace – 01368 865899 – after 10am to find out if the event has been postponed.
Friends are also pleased to acknowledge the offer of help from the Dunbar Shore & Harbour Neighbourhood Group to prepare the East Beach for the sandcastle competition.
