“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.”

“It’s great to see local organisations such as Artyface access funding to involve all members of the local community in creating and displaying these beautiful mosaics that benefit not just the schools where they’ve worked but the wider community from postmen to passersby.

Injecting both creativity and colour across Waltham Forest and London, it’s brilliant to see such a lasting legacy and impact of everyone’s hard work and enthusiasm.”
