Droitwich 2015 Mural design - announces the Droitwich Charter anniversary
At the Droitwich Arts Network meeting of 9th February, students from Witton Middle school, supported by their teacher Louise Jones, unveiled the design for the Droitwich 2015 Mural.
The design is the first activity that announces the 800th anniversary of the Droitwich Charter. The children did a fantastic job, describing the context of the charter and what it meant for the town. They then explained what each panel in the mural represents. They were enthusiastic and conveyed their ideas clearly and confidently. They plan to work with DAN members to complete the mural.
Townsfolk will be able to participate in the creation of the mural when the panels are painted on the 28th March in the town centre. The finished 64 feet wide work will be installed on the wall of the Netherwich Basin of the Droitwich canal where it will be seen from Vines Park. It will be inaugurated by the mayor as part of St Richard's festival on 2nd May.
The mural would not be possible without the support of sponsors, including local estate agent Matt Nicol and Malvern Tyres.
