Easter celebrations in Torbay were boosted with this work by Geoff 'Sand Man' Ward on Torquay seafront - as featured in this week’s photographs by Stephen Coombes.

Retired bus driver Stephen, who lives in Torbay, spends a great deal of his spare time taking photographs of our #NaturallyInspiring Torbay and South Devon. In this feature, Stephen shares the beauty of the Bay and surrounding area with Torbay Weekly readers.

This week, Stephen shares his images of the sand art at Torre Abbey Sands and nearby magnificent St Mary Magdalene Church in Higher Union Street, Torquay. 

Stephen would like to dedicate his pictures to the NHS frontline and support staff for all the tremendous life-saving work they are doing. Our Heroes.
