Young Angmering artists acclaimed

Date: 02 Oct 2017

Children’s art at Angmering station has been has been shortlisted for a national award.
 
Works by pupils at the Georgian Gardens Community Primary School have been recognised in the ‘Community Art Schemes – Renewable and smaller projects’ category of the Association of Community Rail Partnerships (ACoRP) awards.
 
The school has produced a dedicated art display for the station every term as a member of the local Southern Railway Station Partnership. Each December they decorate the station’s Christmas tree, and their 2016 Christmas display, made from recycled materials, won first prize in a competition for ecological art.
 
The school now works with artists from the Community Partnership in Rustington, the neighbouring village, who have contributed to the body of artworks being considered for the ACoRP award.
 
Deirdre Carolin, the school’s lead representative on the Station Partnership, said: “It’s fantastic to see the result of the collaborative work of the three local organisations – the school, Rustington Community Partnership and the station team; we aim to do more together. Thanks also to Station Manager Jeff Edisbury and the station team whose backing for working on more schemes will see this good work continue and expand. We’ve got an idea for a butterfly garden in the wings that we really hope will take off.”
 
Jeff Edisbury said: “I’m immensely grateful to the young artists, to Deirdre and the local volunteers. I’m proud to be able to provide a public space to exhibit children’s art, which improves the experience for our passengers and makes our station a community focal point.”
