Sandcastle Competition first!

A community group in Ballyholme have run their first ever sandcastle building competition on the beach.

Love Ballyholme is a small group of volunteers who have joined forces to bring together local residents, churches, schools and businesses. Revd Jan Stevenson, Community Pastor in Ballyholme Parish, is part of the group.

“Our first Sandcastle Competition for families earlier in June was a great success with an incredible 47 families pre–booking on the Facebook page. Building began at 11.30 am and 45 minutes later it was time for the judging. The standard was amazing and there was a great atmosphere with lots of good natured banter. 

“We hope this will become an annual event like our Christmas Lights Switch On in Ballyholme village and our Easter Family Fun Day on the church lawn.”
