Sandcastles World Record

WE DID IT!

Thankyou to the whole community

2044 sandcastles

To celebrate BB reaching 5000 members on facebook we wanted to do something special for the town so we went after the world record for most sandcastles in a line which was 1924 and now thanks to everyone who came to the beach we smashed 2044 sandcastles!

September 14th 2019 – Barry Island

We had a huge amount of people helping us, many had only planned to stop by for 5 mins and ended up staying 5 hours – so much hard work from everyone in the glorious Barry Island sunshine.

HOW MANY SANDCASTLES?

We managed 2044 sandcastles in a continuous line as officially counted and witnessed by local solicitor Dennis Clarke, Cllr Leighton Rowlands and official survery Mike Newton from Lapider Surveyors.

SANDCASTLE COMPETITION

We held a sandcastle competition which saw 78 entries and littered the beach with fantastic designs and structures from sharks, pyramids, mermaids to a whole city of sand and one was even in the shape of the BB logo!

WHAT HAPPENS NOW?

We submit our reports and evidence to Guinness World Records and as long as they are happy with everything we will be official world record holders. This process takes about 8 weeks.
