The Bude Junior C.A.T.S (Community Action Through Sport) Committee recently hosted two days of creative and sporting beach activities for young children following a successful funding bid from the Community Chest Fund.
Children were able to book onto the activities through the Budehaven Holiday Programme and Stuart Napier led the sessions with the support of Sharon Marshall and eight members of the Junior CATS Committee.
Georgia Higham, Year 10 student, was instrumental in the funding bid and a key driving force in ensuring the event was safe and fun. She writes: “On 7th and 14th August the Bude Junior Cats Committee held Creative Beach Art Experience Days for children aged between 5 and 12 years. These days included a range of activities: sand sculptures, scavenger hunts, a talk from the local lifeguards, informing the children about being safe at the beach as well as taking part in games inspired by the London 2012 Olympics. It was great to see the young children enjoying it even in the wind and rain. The sun did shine but this experience would not have happened without the young people representing Bude Junior CATS Committee making these days a great success. All their hard work paid off, such great role models”.
