The Downderry and Seaton Ocean Day

With two successful Downderry and Seaton Ocean Day's completed, it looks set to become an annual event. 2014 was a big step up from the already successful 2013 event. With even more things to see and do, the hall was packed from the moment the hall opened, with people staying for hours at a time, and everyone leaving with smiles on their face.

The objective of the day is to be a free, educational, entertaining and awareness raising event, which brings the community together to celebrate and learn about our most important recource on our doorstep - the sea. We try to make everything interactive and inclusive and come up with new ideas each year to get everyone involved and immersed in the ocean activities. We also try and include local groups, organisations and businesses wherever possible (without the event becoming a sales / stalls event).

2014's event included:

The NMA, Cornwall College Newquay, RNLI, Underwater Experience, St Nicolas Sea Creature Challenge, Cooking Demo from Nick Barclay, Family Foraging Kitchen, local fish display, local fish paella, animation workshop, treasure hunt, kids craft, photo and art exhibition, NCI Polruan, Stop Dumping In Whitsand Bay and Ocean Pledges.
