Giving Northolt a splash of colour could help raise the spirits and “put the town on the map”, say councillors.
Ward councillors have recruited a Hanwell artist to design a mural for an available wall space which might look at the areas history – the former racecourse at Northolt Park, the RAF base, and so on.
Chris Summers, councillor for Northolt Mandeville, told the Ealing Gazette: “I heard about a mural in Copley Close Estate in Hanwell which was done by kids on the estate. The example in Copley Close is positive. The kids feel good about themselves and it’s made them interested in art.”
A similar exercise was undertaken on the Watermead Estate in Hounslow (pictured), where Hounslow Homes let residents do the painting work.
