Community magic weaved its spell in Boughton during a successful event aimed at tidying up a local ‘grot spot.
The alleyway behind Cherry Road and next to Cherry Grove Primary School in Boughton has been the focus of an innovative project called Mural Magic at Cherry Grove offering an opportunity to bring people together to create some beautiful artwork to improve the area.
Cherry Grove Primary School and the local community have worked alongside Cheshire Development Education Centre - Developing Global Learning, based in Boughton.
Director of CDEC Heather Swainston said: “We are extremely grateful to the New Homes Community Bonus Fund for funding the project. We have been able to hold three community days and create some beautiful artwork for the alleyway.”
All the children at Cherry Grove Primary School painted a wooden disc which were made into a caterpillar and put on the railings.
The theme of the mural was pollinators so some wonderful bees, butterflies and insects have been created.
They held the celebration with the children singing for invited guest Cllr Martyn Delaney and a cake was made by Emma and Rachel Leigh who run local Boughton business Bluebell Bakery.
Town Crier David Mitchell was in attendance and led more than 100 children and adults down the alley to see all the artwork that has been attached to the railings.
