As part of its Coastal Festival 2015, the National Trust is hosting picnic events at beaches across the UK on Saturday 4th July. In celebration of the Roseland’s shores our local Rangers invite us to join them on that day for a picnic at Towan Beach between 12 noon and 3 pm for an afternoon of fun with a coastal theme!
There will also be a great opportunity to wow everyone with your baking skills and enter a cake in their Coast Bake Off.
Speaking to Roseland Online, the Rangers said: “Please make a cake or bake that is inspired by the coast – by design, by taste, or by ingredients. From mermaid munchies to rock-pool rock cakes or a starfish sponge, the choice is yours – we can’t wait to taste them. Judging begins at 2pm so please bring your cake entry to us before then. Prize giving is at 2.45pm. All cakes or bakes will then be sliced and sold for donations to the National Trust.
“If Beach Art is your thing, then get creative on the day and fashion a sculpture or sandcastle out of sand and other things you find on the beach. Again, judging begins at 2pm. There will be face painting for the kids, and all the family can join the treasure hunt to answer the questions posed by our Fishy Quiz. You might like to try floating a seaweed to create your own special seaweed art to take home.
“Please bring your own picnic. There will be tea, coffee, cakes, ice creams and more on sale.”
The National Trust have produced a poster for the event – you can see it here!
