The Friends of Sandsfoot Gardens and Weymouth & Portland Borough Council are running a competition to find a local school pupil to assist in the official opening of Sandsfoot Castle.
Sandsfoot Castle has been closed to the public since the 1930’s. By working together, the Friends Group and the Borough Council submitted a funding bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund. The bid was successful and work to renovate and make the castle accessible began in February 2011. The official opening will take place on 7 April 2012 at 11am.
The winner of the competition will open the castle to the community.

Tara Gooding, Crookhill Depot, Chickerell Road, Weymouth, DT3 4DQ
and the winner will be selected by representatives from the Friends Group and the Council.
