Fun Day on Barmouth Beach!


On the 26th August Gwynedd Council’s Biodiversity Team ran a fun day on Barmouth beach.  It was a fantastic day with plenty of fun and games.  This event was held to celebrate the wonderful marine life we have around the coastline of the Pen Llŷn a’r Sarnau Special Area of Conservation (SAC). 

A sand sculpture competition was held with some fantastic results!  Alison Hargrave, SAC Officer with Gwynedd Council said “it was incredibly difficult to choose a winner as all the entries were of such a high standard”.  Adam Jones (aged 9), Freya Johnson (aged 10) and Harvey Johnson (aged 7) won with their brilliant marine sculptures.
