Mural Art Project at Wilstead

Friday 6th August 2010

 

 

The underpass at Wilstead looks set to get a makeover as Bedford Borough Council’s Community Safety Team, Integrated Youth Support and The Youth Offending Team have been working on a Mural Art Project, which is set to be completed on Friday 27th August.

 

Cllr Barry Huckle has been actively supporting the project which received £1,290 from the Street Cred Funding stream.

 

So far, Bedford Borough Council have held two consultation meetings with young people from Bedford Day Care Centre and members of the local community about possible ideas for the mural planned for the underpass between the Wixams and Wilstead. Students from Bedford College then took these ideas and have produced a design.

 

Cllr Barry Huckle, Portfolio Holder for Arts & Leisure, at Bedford Borough Council said: “This project just goes to show when young people are engaged in positive activities, they can make a real difference to both improving their lives and their community at the same time.”

 

Amey along with some members of Community Payback Scheme will be cleaning one side of the tunnel over the next two weeks, and then between 16th – 27th August, Bedford Borough Council will run the project which will involve young people, students from Bedford College, members from the Bedford Day Care Centre and members of the local community, painting the mural.
