INFORMATION boards are being installed at four points around Weston’s south ward to celebrate the completion of the Revealing the Hidden Arts Project.

There are 13 works dotted around the ward which forms the Rhynes Art Project.

The boards will be located at St Andrews Parade on the Bournville, Loxton Road on the Coronation, Aller Parade on the Oldmixon, and Millennium Green Park on the Potteries.

They will show a map of the entire Rhynes Art Project, along with the locations of the works, directions and a brief description of the trail.

The project was overseen by lead artist Mike Fletcher and funded by the South Ward Neighbourhood Management Partnership.

Vicki Rooke, of the partnership, said: “The project takes the hidden history and features of the landscape that often people would overlook.

“Each piece has been inspired by a little piece of history behind it and some of the ideas were directly taken from workshops with local people.

“Other pieces are based on stories from local people and reveal the hidden of the landscape of south ward.”
