Kids help decorate Ottery Sainsbury’s site
ARTY youngsters from Ottery Primary School have seen their work used to decorate the site of Hind Street’s under-construction Sainsbury’s store.
Contractor Kier organised a screen printing workshop with children and arranged for the results to be displayed.
Site Manager Andy Shepherd said: “They’ve done a brilliant job and I’m sure everyone would agree it has made our hoarding far more colourful and interesting to look at.”
Ottery Primary School art co-ordinator Verity Anthony added pupils decided to focus on town traditions like Pixie Day and Tar Barrels.
They also painted pictures of important Ottery landmarks like the parish church.
