Spruce-up for San­dring­ham

Central Leader - - NEWS -

San­dring­ham Vil­lage is get­ting a touch of the bright and arty.

Flags de­signed by artist Shan­non No­vak are hang­ing from lamp­posts in the vil­lage.

They’ve been in­stalled by the Al­bert Eden Lo­cal Board and the San­dring­ham Busi­ness As­so­ci­a­tion to try to spruce up the area and at­tract more trade.

Shop roller doors are next on the list to be trans­formed into works of art.

‘‘Roller doors

present

a de­press­ing face to the world when the shops are closed,’’ lo­cal board mem­ber Helga Ar­ling­ton says.

‘‘San­dring­ham is set to be­come a vis­ually iconic des­ti­na­tion, with uniquely co­or­di­nated art­work,’’ she says.
