Families that just love to be beside the seaside need look no further than their doorsteps this August as Coalville by the Sea returns.
The grass area at Needhams Walk will transform into a sand-filled coastal scene at this free North West Leicestershire District Council event on Friday 4 August.
A giant sandpit, sponsored by Coalville family builders merchant P&R Building Supplies, will be filled with buckets and spades to provide hours of fun for children who can dig, build and bury between 11am and 4pm.
When not building sandcastles, families can enjoy entertainment including Pinxton Puppets, balloon modelling, face painting, a bubbleologist, bouncy castle, music and lots of games organised by the council’s leisure team.
There will also be refreshments on sale including plenty of ice cream!
Music will be provided by Hermitage FM and all people need bring is something to sit on – and plenty of sun cream if the sun is shining.
Needhams Walk can be found between Belvoir Road and the town centre car park off High Street, Coalville.
