Group puts pieces to­gether for sign

Tablelands Advertiser - - NEWS -

A BEAU­TI­FUL mo­saic sign is wel­com­ing tourists and lo­cals to take a stroll and ap­pre­ci­ate the nat­u­ral world.

Molloy Arts re­cently com­pleted a mo­saic project that marks the start of an area of reveg­e­tated bush­land called Bab­bler Hill.

The eye-catch­ing sign may en­cour­age visi­tors and lo­cals to visit the plant­ings, which are within easy walk­ing dis­tance from the main street.

With the help of a grant from the Re­gional Arts Devel­op­ment Fund (RADF) and Mareeba Shire Coun­cil, Molloy Arts were able to hold a com­mu­nity mo­saic work­shop ear­lier in the year to en­cour­age com­mu­nity in­volve­ment in the arts for the ben­e­fit of the town.

The group hopes to con­tinue mak­ing the town even more beau­ti­ful and next year they plan to cre­ate a mu­ral for the main street. IF YOU WOULD LIKE MORE IN­FOR­MA­TION ABOUT THE PROJECT OR WOULD LIKE TO JOIN IN ON WED­NES­DAY MORN­INGS, PLEASE PHONE JULIANA ON 40941096.
