Stuck for something to do with the kids next week for half term? You could take a trip to Goodwick Parrog beach in Pembrokeshire from Monday and assist in the possible creation of a brand new world record.

Sea Trust Organisation will be attempting to create a huge sand whale on the beach all next week. Cliff from STO Wales said: "I decided we should build a sand sculpture of a whale on Goodwick Parrog beach during the half term holidays to keep the kids amused.

"I emailed people including the press saying we were planning to do so and today was interviewed by my mate Jim Hughes for Pembrokeshire Radio's On the Waterfront programme. During the interview Jim asked what the world record was and if we would beat it. I said I did not know but we would try!

"So far as I can tell from Google there is no record. We will meet at the Ocean Lab, Fishguard Harbour at 11am on Monday Morning and start the sculpture. We will just keep on going as long as we can throughout the week and hopefully make something colossal . Come and help! Bring buckets and spades and enthusiasm; let's make one beached whale a symbol of hope and conmmunity spirit!"
