A vivid display of colourful, newly painted banners brightened up an otherwise cool and windy morning in Heritage Park in Ashcroft. The banners were painted in a two day workshop held in March and are to replace the street banners on Railway Avenue.
Under the guidance of local artist Jo Petty, and with a financial contribution from the United Way, local citizens of all ages came together and created 12 double-sided banners. The bright, colorful and creatively painted banners will be installed on the poles in the next two to three weeks.
The “Banner Unveiling Celebration” held in Heritage Park last Saturday, saw most of the banner painters in attendance as well as representatives from United Way, Communities in Bloom, Ashcroft Village Council and our local MLA, Jackie Tegart. Attendees chatted together and cake and juice was enjoyed by all.
