Rosyth Art Project

EDM number 1612 in 2017-19, proposed by Douglas Chapman on 11/09/2018.
Categorised under the topic of Arts.

That this House welcomes the success of the recently established Rosyth Art Project; notes that the project was initiated to brighten up the town's public places and introduce splashes of colour to otherwise dull buildings and surfaces; understands that the colourful mural painted on an outbuilding on the town's main thoroughfare represents Rosyth as a Garden City, depicting its sporting ambition, community garden, honey bees, floral displays, creativity, industrial heritage and waterside location; admires the vivid and eye-catching Rosyth Community Hub frontage displaying a painted medley of fruit and vegetables; notes that other local businesses have now requested personalised art for their own shop frontages; congratulates Lindsay Bennett, illustration student at Gray's School of Art in Aberdeen, on leading the project and encouraging local schoolchildren to take part, making it a real community effort; and wishes the project continued success in making Rosyth a more attractive and welcoming place for residents and visitors alike.

This motion has been signed by a total of 14 MPs.
