NCT saves the day for pavilion art!
Nottingham City Transport will fund materials for our pavilion art project!
Not only have NCT provided the funds to make the children’s dream a reality, Paul Goodson, events co-ordinator for Friends of Onchan Park who came up with the idea and pulled the project together, works for NCT as does the graffiti artist Dak from In Living Colour who will be transforming the children’s artwork from A4 designs to life size graffiti works of art. The Friends of Onchan Park Group are delighted that NCT marketing Director Anthony Carver-Smith stepped in to provide the cost of materials to enable the artwork to go ahead.
“We couldn’t have dreamt of a better response. NCT and their employees have really done the community proud! The pavilion has been looking rather neglected this year since government budget cuts have come into force and this will really brighten up the park space. The children have been really excited at the prospect of their artwork being turned into giant graffiti art. ” said Alison Pritchard Chair of The Friends of Onchan Park group.
Local people are looking forward to seeing the graffiti art completed. The volunteer group also hope to apply for grant funding to create a community hub and completely renovate the park, working with Gedling Borough Council.
