The Painting of Balmoral Bridge

Volunteers get ready for a group photo after their work is complete

Features on the east side of the bridge

Over a beautiful sunny weekend in July, Balmoral Bridge was closed to traffic and people from the neighbourhood were invited to come and show their artistic side. The response was enthusiastic and the completed artwork is a tribute to all the volunteers.

Sponsored by the local council, with help from local artist James Valentine and refreshments from Coffee7 workers, the weekend was a great success with an enjoyable and productive event for all the volunteers.
