VIDEO: Pupils show what Woburn Sands means to them

Pupils from Fulbrook School helped to create a mural at Woburn Sands station showing what they thought was special about the town.

The children spent a whole term thinking about and creating their artwork which included their school, a halfpipe at a local park, the golf course and hometown hero, gold-medal winning Greg Rutherford’s, homecoming open top bus tour.

The children started planning the artworks in January and after the final four designs were chosen they got in to groups and sketched the designs onto white canvas boards.

They then painted the drawings with gloss paint before officials from London Midland, who helped to install them, covered them in anti vandalism paint.

The children were joined by the Mayor of Woburn Sands, Councillor Paul Farrant, Councillor David Hopkins and parents as they unveiled their masterpieces.

Teaching assistant, Tess Mason, said: “The children are really chuffed with the result and we have felt really well supported throughout. This kind of project makes the children think about their community and the responsibility they have for it.

“It shows that they can have an impact on where they live in a positive way.”
