Olympic Beach

Staff and Volunteers drew a huge Paralympic logo in the sand of Rhossili Beach under the watchful eye of a time-lapse photographer. Agitos on Rhossili Beach / Chris Russell-Jones

When the London 2012 committee approached the Trust to produce a time-lapse film showing the creation of the Paralympic logo, we knew we'd have to work fast. They'd seen the Oak Leaf Challenge film we did last September and were inspired.

We only had a short window of time before the tide would cover the beach so it was vital that nothing was left to chance in the planning stages.

On the day 27 adults and two classes from local Penclawdd Primary School helped us to dig the design.

"This is the second time-lapse film we've done on Rhossili Beach, so many of our digging team are getting quite professional at this." said organiser, Kathryn Thomas (NT Gower). 

"And our volunteer surveyors did an outstanding job marking out the grid for us. Then all we had to do was transfer the design from paper to beach!"

The film for this spectacular will be released to worldwide news agencies and be shown on London 2012 and YouTube websites, as well as the BBC Big Screens around the country.
