NEW COMMISSION FOR CENTRAL BEDFORDSHIRE

WE ARE PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE A NEW MOSAIC TRAIL COMMISSION FOR CENTRAL BEDFORDSHIRE


WORKING WITH THE COMMUNITIES OF THREE TOWNS IN BEDFORDSHIRE; SANDY, POTTON AND BIGGLESWADE AND IN PARTNERSHIP WITH "STORY IN STONE" (www.storyinstone.org.uk) WE NOW HAVE DESIGNS READY TO START WORK ON THE NINE MOSAIC THEMES.


The designs for the Story In Stone Three Town Mosaic Trail were rolled out to the public yesterday evening (Nov.30th) at Robert Peel Lower School in Sandy.  These received an extremely positive reception.

The designs are the result of much consultation and fact-finding with all three towns and are a culmination of ideas and input from Historical Societies, the public, schools and town councils.

The mosaics will be made partly in community workshops and local schools and partly in the Budd Mosaic studio.  The elements will be brought together and installed in the different towns from early summer 2017 to March 2018.

The designs have been based around some topics that are well known within the communities but also some lesser-known facts and historical stories that may stimulate interest and further research.

The mosaics will be colourful, educative and local landmarks.   Designs below:
