CHILDREN from across Cheshire are being invited to Blakemere Craft Centre to take part in a giant Art Attack-style event tomorrow (Friday), which aims to get youngsters involved in politics.
A giant portrait of David Cameron and Gordon Brown is being made at the event in the Sandiway centre using recycled car tyres, in a bid highlight the importance of green issues in the political agenda.
Children will be able to help the artists lay out the different coloured chopped up tyres on the day.
The event is being organised by Connexions and new recycling firm Re-Bound, run by Frodsham-based Bob Jones.
Re-Bound takes old car tyres and turns them into chippings which can then be used as safety surfaces on children’s playgrounds.
Mr Jones said of the event: “The idea is that we get children excited about politics – and also recycling.
“We want to get as many youngsters as possible involved in creating this giant piece of art.
“Hopefully it will attract some attention and make sure the green issue is not pushed down the agenda during the election.”
