Jersey Residents Meet the ‘Sand Wizard’

Residents from both L’Hermitage Care Centre and Beaumont Villa Dementia Unit in Jersey enjoyed a fantastic trip out to see and meet Jersey’s ‘Sand Wizard.’

Simon Smith is a true artist, creating fabulously detailed sculptures from the sand on the beautiful beaches around Jersey.

The residents were wowed by the finished masterpieces, but just as amazed to see the Sand Wizard in action. He spends hours delicately carving Mythical creatures and Fairytale Castles with miniature windows and doors to bring the creations to life. Residents met the wizard himself

Simon, who does not get paid to produce the sculptures, but relies solely on donations, was very generous with his time. He chatted to the group, gave them a guided tour of his latest exhibits and even gave away a few well kept secrets.

L’Hermitage is a stunning purpose-built care home providing residential and nursing care for up to 41 elderly ladies and gentlemen in St Peter, Jersey.
