A Worle scout has won a competition to name the RNLI’s new buoy, choosing the name Buoyoncé.
Dylan Mitchell’s winning entry was chosen by North Somerset Council, which held a competition to name one of the buoys in Weston Bay.
Thirty members of the 1st North Worle Scouts attended a prize-giving ceremony at Weston RNLI Station where they received a certificate and a map showing Buoyoncé’s location.
Ben Owen-Brooks, assistant district commissioner for 1st North Worle Scouts, said: “We are immensely proud that one of our scouts, Dylan Mitchell, had his entry chosen.
“Identifying the buoy will no doubt become part of our hikes for many years to come.
