The tide washed the sand art away by 2-3pm. 

The Community Council for Somerset said its village and community agents have worked tirelessly through the pandemic, from distributing surviving winter grants, to providing meal boxes to people and families in need to make sure Somerset's most vulnerable are looked after.

The charity hopes the piece of art created yesterday is a small token of their appreciation for everything the village and community agents, NHS, social care and frontline workers do on a daily basis.
