Southend Standard: Sandbanksy makes their mark Sandbanksy makes their mark

A NUMBER of pictures drawn in the beach below the Cliffs Pavilion have been attracting attention on social media.

The artwork includes a maze drawn in the sand, encouraging passers-by to 'Try Me', a series of pathways and an intricate circular motif.

The pictures, signed by the artist calling themself 'Sandbanksy' appeared on Friday and were posted on Facebook and Twiter by Juliet Kilpin, activist and coordinator of Urban Shalon, a church planting agency.

The photos have been featured on the BBC News website and local radio, as well as being publicised on local Twitter feeds.

It's a gardening agency that plants churches. That's why you never see churches being built.
