As part of the Buckingham Fringe Week, Buckingham Town Council asked local children to get creative and help produce a mural showing what you can see when out for a walk in and around Buckingham. Twenty-six local children between the ages of 4 and 12yrs submitted fantastic, colourful pictures of bugs, flowers, bees, birds and even a deer.
The 8ft x 4ft mural was unveiled by Buckingham’s Mayor, Cllr Geraldine Collins and is currently on display in the big window at the back of the Lace Hill Sports and Community Centre where it can be safely viewed from outside. In the future, the mural will be displayed in various locations around the town to maximise the number of people who will get to see it.
Chairman of the Town Centre & Events Committee, Cllr Robin Stuchbury said:
“Having been fortunate enough to be involved with the Town Council’s events for a number of years, I have to say the young artistic expression and talent within the mural is truly worth viewing. It definitely deserves to have a place within the town for everybody to share in the success of the young individuals who took part in this Buckingham fringe event”.
The mural was produced by the Children’s Workshop who have worked with thousands of children to create murals and sculptures for schools, shopping centres, towns and libraries up and down the country.
