If you think making sandcastles is just about patting some sand in a bucket and tipping it out, look what went on in Skegness over May Bank Holiday weekend.

Giant alligators, a seal and an ‘Elvis’ reclining in the bracing Skegness air were wow factors that inspired families taking part in the resort’s first sand-sculpting workshops and competition event on the central beach at the weekend.

The town teamed up with Anglian Water’s Keep it Clear campaign and the professional sand sculpting company Sand In Your Eye for the two-day event which started on Saturday.

Claire Jamieson, of Sand in Your Eye, said: “We’ve been really impressed with the enthusiasm of families taking part.”

One of the winners was 10-year-old Ronan Waters, of Horncastle, who made a hedgehog and entered the competition with his twin brother Aidan and sister Lyra. He said: “It’s been really fun. I was really surprised to have won.”

Lisa Collins, East Lindsey Coastal destination BID development manager, was there with her family. She said: “It’s been great seeing so many local families as well as visitors here. We hope to run it again next year.”
