On Saturday 7th June, 2014 the Downderry and Seaton Ocean Day entertained, educated and brought together the community. Busy from start to finish, the 2014 event was a big step up from the previous year with so many more things to see, do and interact with.

Presented by Our World Is Blue, the Ocean Day is a gathering of like minded groups and community wanting to celebrate our most important resource, right on our doorstep – The Sea.
