Werrington residents invited to help with Cuckoos Hollow underpass project

The Werrington Underpass Project begins in two weeks - with opportunities for residents and young people to take part and help out.

After securing funding from the Cambridgeshire Community Foundation to repaint the murals at Cuckoo Hollow underpass, Werrington Neighbourhood Council asked for local opinions and input on designs. The chosen theme was Werrington's nature, and over 300 pictures were received as inspiration.

From September 27, work will be starting on the project, beginning with brushing the walls down, removing weeds and generally tidying up the area.

The next day September 28, will see the start of the painting project. Daytime sessions to work with an artist can be arranged from this Monday onwards in groups of five - and will be socially distanced.

On Saturday October 3, younger residents and their families will be able to have socially-distanced sessions with an artist to learn some more about the mural project and what goes into making it happen.

These sessions are free and open to all residents who live in the Werrington parish. Anyone interested should email with an indication of times they are available. Sessions will be arranged once the level of interest is known.

The team is also asking people to stop by and say hello, even if they don't want to take part in any of the creative sessions.
