A sandy safety message!



The 34th Annual Clam Harbour Beach Sandcastle Competition was held on Sunday at Clam Harbour Beach Provincial Park. Each year, the event attracts over 10,000 residents and visitors to the Lake Charlotte area of HRM.


The WCB commissioned a sculpture by artist, Ray Lafresne, who has worked on ice sculptures for Winterlude in Ottawa, and more recently sand sculptures for the Lifesaving Society of Nova Scotia during their National Drowning Prevention week.

The sculpture was built to help promote the WCB's young worker campaign encouraging everyone not to leave their words behind and speak up about work place safety. Visitors found the sculpture very interesting and asked a lot of questions to the artist and street teams. It prompted many people to talk about their own situations and felt the message was very important.
