Burnham's world record sandcastle building bid attracts sponsor

Burnham-On-Sea's Sunspot Amusements has come forward as the main sponsor of the town's attempt to set a new sandcastle building world record this Spring.

The organisers of the event, which is to be held on Saturday June 2nd during Burnham's Jubilee celebrations, issued an appeal for sponsors last week and since then the seafront arcade has come forward to offer financial help.

The world record bid on Burnham-On-Sea beach will see a large crowd of people trying to beat the current record of building hundreds of sandcastles like the one pictured above in just one hour.

The event is being jointly organised by Burnham Coastguards, BARB, the RNLI and Burnham Lions, with money raised going to the four groups.

Sunspot's manager, Pauline Williams, told "We're happy to be sponsoring such a fun community event as this and wish everyone involved with the bid lots of luck. We hope lots of people turn out on the day to join in!"

The record attempt will be held at 12.30pm on the town's beach, north of the Pavilion, following a parade of schoolchildren from Highbridge's Apex Park to the seafront. Other local businesses who wish to contribute can contact the organiser on 07724995631 or email him here.
