Welcome Interpretation Sign
Ricky Grimes and Students of Chiswick Community School
We are delighted that work has started with our chosen artist
Ricky Grimes and the Students from Chiswick Community School on creating the Welcome/ Interpretation Sign for the entrance to Dukes Meadows from Corney Reach.
The piece will comprise of two sculptures covered with ceramic
tiles, which will be made by students from the school. We have had a number of meetings with local residents to get their input and support for the proposal and eagerly await the installation of the pieces early in the New Year.
We are particularly grateful to the Head David Brockie and Head of Art Andy Davolls for their help and support.
