Annual Whitley Bay Sandcastle Competition.

HUNDREDS of families are expected to hit the beach on 27 July as they look to build a name, pyramid, mermaid or just a castle for themselves.

The annual Whitley Bay Sandcastle Competition will be taking place on Sunday 27 July.

Registration is from 10.00 am and judging will take place 1.00 pm. Families are urged to bring their buckets and spades as there are limited numbers. Shuggy boats and face painting all free.

The event, organised by Whitley Bay Chamber of Trade in partnership with North Tyneside Council, attracts entrants of all ages, from toddlers to grandparents.

Be Aware - Payment Scam

Members should watch out for correspondence arriving in the post headed 'searchforcompanies'. It looks very much like an invoice for payment of £312.48 to be made payable to Hansa Media Ltd and could easily be passed to a bookkeeper for payment. It's only when you get to the small print that you learn it is not a demand but an invitation to advertise your business online. It is a scam that has been around for quite some time but may be doing the rounds again.
