Sun, sea and sandcastles were the order of the day when Seahouses RNLI hosted a fund-raising bank holiday sandcastle competition.

Rachel Douglas, one of the organisers and a crew member, said a great day was had by all.

The competition was originally planned for yesterday, but was moved to today because of bad weather.
