A piece of artwork produced for the Sidmouth Wallspace billboard last year has been put on permanent display at the Sid Valley Practice GPs' surgery.

'Our Town' was created by a group of 60 people of all ages, working with coordinating artist Maureen Hawkridge. They produced 234 pictures of Sidmouth buildings and views, which were put together into one image.

The pictures included contributors' own homes, views of the seafront and quirky personal touches.

The artwork has now been installed in the waiting room of the Beacon Surgery with a 'Can you Spot?' game added to the information sign.

Dr Sara Hadfield said: "We are thrilled to have the Our Town artwork in our new waiting room. We all think it is fantastic; there is something new to see every time you look. It will certainly make a big impact on our patients as they wait for an appointment.”

Louise Cole from Sidmouth School of Art said: "This is the absolute definition of art being a pathway to wellbeing, for those who created it and for those who view it. 

"What better place than the doctors' surgery waiting room for such a collaborative, multi-generational picture that is so vibrant, joyous and engaging. 

"Our vision is that Sidmouth is the artwork and our mission is to create a kaleidoscope of opportunities for everyone to make, create and view art – so for us this is such a success story.”
