Sidmouth mural joy
SIDMOUTH residents have been enjoying a new mural in the town - thanks to the work of around 100 children.
The seascape artwork was part of a regeneration project at The Ham and was partly funded by A �250 donation from the Sid Vale Association’s (SVA) Keith Owen Fund.
Children each painted one tile of the mural, which is displayed on the outer wall of Bagwell’s Wet Fish Shop.
SVA vice chairman Handel Bennett was ‘thrilled’ with the outcome.
“The mural is an attractive asset to the town, and links the beauty of the Sid Valley with the attraction of the sea,” he said.
