From grot spot to great spot
One of Redruth’s “grot spot’s” has been given a makeover.
That hoardings that have been placed around the derelict land has been designed and illustrated by Hooper Graphics. It also features the new logo for Redruth, that highlights its place as the financial heart of Cornish Mining, also designed by Hooper Graphics.
Behind the hoardings is a mural that was created jointly by pupils from Redruth School; textiles artist, Tony Minnion and lighting artist, Peter Freeman. This mural really comes to live at night when it is lit with different colours.
It has been a big collaboration of local businesses, including Perimeters, Ellis Electrical, Control Print, URS Scott Wilson and Cloth of Gold. The project has been many years in the making and Mel Martin was the Project Manager whilst working at CPR.
However special mention should go to Anne Pascoe, of Redruth Education and Economics Arts Partnership (REAP) who has put in hours and hours of work, over the last few years. Well done Anne, it really has transformed this part of Redruth from a grot spot to a great spot.
