AN artist has inspired children to help brighten their estate with a new wall mural.

Simon Jackson, who lives in Netherfield, enlisted the help of hundreds of children who got to work by painting plywood panels which were then arranged by Simon on a wall close to the Netherfield Tavern pub.

He said: “The area looked a bit dreary and it was a waste of a good wall.

“Now I am hoping to hold sessions at the local youth club where children can work on updating the mural with new panels as and when they are needed.”
