Mayoral Candidate/ Mural Painting Event a Success
Last Saturday, 10 September, a local Richmond alleyway was a flutter of activity as residents and families came to meet the mayoral candidates whilst painting a garden mural.
There was a great turnout to meet the candidates running for Mayor. David Meates, Phil Mauger, Carl Bromley and the Wizard met Richmond locals and even gave painting a go! They painted bees, birds, suns, and even a digger, alongside children and residents doing the same.
It was a perfect sunny day to brighten up the alleyway. This was the third time We are Richmond (RRBA–Richmond Residents and Business Association) has held this community event. Each time, the mural comes more alive and there is always positive feedback from passersby and residents of the three-storey Housing Development, which overlooks the alley.
The sausage sizzle sponsored by New World Stanmore was popular and grasses were planted at the base of the fence.
Join us next time!
Follow We are Richmond on facebook to learn about other upcoming events, or contact us if you have any ideas of other ways to brighten up our community at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A huge thank you to CCC Graffiti Team, who kindly donated the materials needed to make the mural painting a success! Paint, brushes, gloves, aprons, drop cloths, and buckets.
Thank you Stanmore New World for generously donating the food for the sausage sizzle, that so many were able to enjoy.
