History of the Project...

The project first started when Les Elvin, Community Artist, thought about setting up a Mural Exchange project for local schools in Breightmet.

This was the first Mural sent from Marina View, you can see the original painting on the wall!

The original artwork was then re created by Les and children on a metal shutter on local shops.
St. Andrew's School was then commissioned to design a large mural which depicts life in Bolton during Victorian Times and the Industrial Revolution.  
Children started their designs to be sent electronically to Marina View School, Auckland, New Zealand.
Meanwhile, Les travels to New Zealand to visit relatives and Marina View School!
