This is how years of neglect have left the seawall shelters, FoRS asked for permission to ‘brighten’ them up…
Step up East Kent College
Thanks go out to Mark Norton, Dani Flowerdew and the Level 3 Art & Design Students of East Kent College who have spent many hours, including holiday time too, painting these vibrant designs in the shelters to bring a much needed splash of colour to decaying part of Ramsgate.
All of the designs were submitted by students (over 20 in all) in advance of the project getting underway with the final 8 designs to be used chosen by Ramsgate Mayor Trevor Shonk.
Friends of Ramsgate Seafront would like to thank all those who have taken part in this project to date on the 5 completed designs, it is planned to complete the remaining 3 shelters in the spring of 2018.
FoRS will then prepare and paint the externals of the shelters…
It has been an absolute pleasure to meet the staff and young people of East Kent College with such a passion for their art – Thank you.
