Downderry and Seaton Ocean Day


On Saturday 29th June 2013, we celebrated our coastline and oceans with an exciting new event – Downderry and Seaton Ocean Day – featuring various activities, groups, things to see, do and get involved with for ALL ages!



Presented by Our World Is Blue, the Ocean Day was a gathering of like minded groups and community wanting to celebrate our most important resource, right on our doorstep – The Sea.


The day featured the following

  • Ocean Photography and Art Exhibition (see here for list of contributers)
  • Cornwall College Newquay - discover the microscopic world of the ocean
  • Kids Craft Kitchen - special one-off ocean themed craft kitchen session
  • Beach Clean with a Difference - create art out of the rubbish found on the beach. Beach clean at 2pm at Seaton Beach. Run by Rame Peninsula Beach Care group
