During Sea Week at the end of August, Pagham Yacht Club’s child protection officer, Tracy Robinson, challenged Pagham youngsters aged from five to 16 were to take a beach-themed photo, taken locally, for a chance to win a £20 voucher.

13-year-old George Sedgwick’s photo of crashing waves on the beach was named as the winning picture and, as an added winning bonus, has been transformed into a canvas print which will be displayed at Pagham Yacht Club.
