Sandcastle building challenge beaten by
group of Venture Scouts who set out to build one of Burnham beach's
biggest sandcastles this week was beaten by the weather.
what should have been a fine summer's evening, the group of 20
teenagers from Mid-Sedgemoor Explorer Scouts gathered near the
jetty with garden spades and shovels for the monumental task ahead.
within minutes of starting the skies had darkened and they were
given a soaking as heavy rain and thunder swept in.
Leader Mick White told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "We'd planned
the evening several weeks ago and hadn't counted on getting rain,
thunder and lightning on a summer's evening!"
He joked: "If
the weather's this good in the summer, our visit to the beach
will have to become a bi-annual event!"
Explorer Scouts meet every Tuesday evening at Burnham-On-Sea Scout
HQ to take part in a range of activities including sailing, canoeing
