TEAMS will be competing to be king of the castle at an eye-catching competition being held in Woolacombe early next month.
The 16th annual North Devon Hospice Sandcastle Competition takes place on the beach on Sunday, July 12 and there's still plenty of time for teams wanting to enter to come up with some inspiring sand sculpture ideas that'll topple the competition.
Digging starts at 1pm and teams of up to six will have three hours to dig, carve and sculpt their masterpieces before judging at 4pm.
All team members must be over the age of 16, but children are being invited to join in the fun by contributing to a line of sandcastles that organisers hope will stretch all the way along the beach to Putsborough.
