We may be fast heading into autumn and winter but spring and summer are still very much alive in one corner of Nuneaton, with the help of a local artist.
Bees, butterflies, flowers and a myriad of bright colours including yellow, orange, pink, purple and blue greets customers every time they shop at The Co-operative store in Attleborough.
The mural was the brainchild of Kieran Brown, of community group Attleborough Community Matters.
Kieran had long had an idea for a landscape mural in a prominent area of Attleborough and thought the wall outside The Co-operative was a perfect spot. His idea was brought to the fore after Covid-19 when he realised communities as a whole needed a lift.
Kieran approached the Heart of England Co-operative Society which was delighted to offer its wall and to give its support to the scheme.
The mural was painted by local artist Nathan Parker.
Kieran said: “Although lockdown wasn’t the catalyst for the mural, it was certainly the reason we decided to make it so bright and colourful. We have had an excellent response to it – it’s certainly lovely to look at whenever you head to The Co-operative.”Back to newsline
