We listened to our youths.... Next steps

well, we were a little behind in completing all of the murals we had hoped for as the top quality work had taken more time than intended.However, this gave us time to chat to the kids and youths in the park as they were playing around the disused building - often kicking their footballs up against our newly painted murals!So what do they need or what would the like to see?A backdrop to use as a goal or target ......  Hmmmm.....so what could we do next?A quick chat with our artist Eleanor Darling and we had a plan..... Lots of  blues and greens with a football net against which to shoot.Clever Eleanor applied masking tape to the boards and just over an hour of rollering the blue and green and we had covered all the board area.The following morning we peeled back the masking tape - and as if by magic the goal appeared!Next Saturday 25th sees us back at the park hopefully with some of the local kids to apply some detail and finish off our Capital Clean up Project with some style and satisfaction
