Popular Bridgwater Beat Bobby Tex Freeman has launched another major community initiative in the West street area and this time it’s a new mural alongside his famous West Street Garden, which was opened to the public last year.

Tex said “Homes in Sedgemoor kindly gave permission for the wall to be rendered and Clean Surroundings cleared the area of weeds and ivy for us. I arranged to get the wall rendered through Dave Howe (Samson) which was paid for by remaining funding from the garden project. I also plan to put another seating table in the garden in the future to complete my garden project.”

Involving the kids

On Friday 5th June 2015 Sophie CHAPMAN (art teacher) and pupils from Haygrove school painted the winning design and they were also joined by children from Westover Green, St Mary’s and St Josephs Schools who helped paint.

Tex adds “I held another competition with Haygrove School where I gave prizes for the top 3 designs, which were as follows £50, £30 and £20 Amazon vouchers.”

The winners were as follows.

1st- Madeline Rossiter
2nd- Leia Nicholls
3rd- Ruby Faun
