Royal British Legion club entrance given new look
7:20am Tuesday 30th October 2012 in News
A SMOKING shelter at the entrance of Stourport’s Royal British Legion club has been given a new look by art group members.
The wooden shelter has been decorated with painted tiles depicting the work and history of the Royal British Legion.
Mike Freeman, secretary of the club, said: “We felt we would like to make the shelter look more attractive as it is next to the entrance, for visitors and smokers. The back wall of the smoking hut was very large and plain.”
The art group, which meets at the Stourport club, is run by teacher Lucy Jolly.
She said: “We have always been huge supporters of the Royal British Legion and this was both a great opportunity and challenge for us.”
The group took about three months to complete the tiles ready to be displayed in the shelter.
Mr Freeman added: “Everybody at the club is very impressed with the paintings. They are a tribute and in memory of those who gave their lives for this country and are still doing so today.”
A calendar has been produced for 2013 using the art group’s paintings and will be on sale at the club to raise money for the Royal British Legion.
