National Sandcastle Competition at Croyde Bay

National Sandcastle Competition CroydeThe sun had his hat on at Croyde Bay last weekend for the National Sandcastle Competition as 12 teams (Including our very own Team Parkdean!) battled for the right to call themselves king of the sandcastle 2013 and of course to raise money in aid of North Devon Hospice.

Team Ruda consisted of staff members from the Café, Surf Shop and Accommodation team at Ruda Holiday Park with a little help from their friends. The team could be found preparing and cleaning the beach ready for the competition from 4.30am, ready for over 7000 people who flocked to the beach to enjoy the atmosphere at glorious Croyde Bay.

Live music, trampolines, Punch and Judy, face painting and ice cream trailers galore provided good old fashioned beach front entertainment for this family friendly competition as teams battled to become king of the sandcastle!

This year’s competition also saw the introduction of junior entries, which were a real hit with 8 teams competing! Kids loved taking part and getting to hang out with our favorite seagull and lizard Sid & Lizzie!

And the winners were:
1st Pearce Construction – Lundy Island
2nd James Electrical – Drunken Pirate
3rd Billy Budds – Dam Buster

A fantastic day was had by all and all for a great cause!
