New mural for school
CHRIST Church Infant School has been brightened with a new animal-themed mural.
It has been painted by a team of volunteers from Aviva following a community effort.
Head teacher Anna Martin said it began with her father, Derek Taylor, a local resident, sorting out new panels to repair the old boiler house. These were fitted by an ex parent, Craig Stenner, and the Aviva team was led by Sheryl Stenner, a former governor and ex parent.
Mrs Martin said: “We are so grateful yet again for the community spirit that exists in Downend and for our amazingly talented staff Peter Atkinson, Teresa Llewellyn and Mandy Fricker for brightening up this tired wall and giving our school community something beautiful to look at.”
