‘I loved joining in and participating in the mosaic project. Me and my friends love it. The drawing excercises were great too. What made it even better as that it was a first time experience and we found a new interest so it really makes me want to go again. I really hope other people get an opportunity like this.’

“I think they’re absolutely fantastic. I love the bird theme and it just brightens my walk every time I walk past it. If you’ve got local people working on things like this then they will have a real sense of pride in that they can see what they’ve accomplished. It’s going to be there for such a long time as well, the longevity of them are really important.
This section of Church Hill a couple of years ago was just not anywhere near as lovely and as welcoming as it is now. The fact that they’ve pedestrianised this part and that these murials are here is the icing on the cake really.”
