Wedmore, North Petherton, Bridgwater, Weare and Huntspill took

year, the entries had a World Cup theme with plenty of flags,
stadiums and footballs being crafted in the sand. One entry even
included an aeroplane for the returning England team!

the event had gone. She added: "The event is a wonderful
opportunity for groups from across the district to come together.
We've had a great evening and the sunny weather made perfect conditions
for sandcastle building!"
