Mu­ral brought to life

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

A STU­DENT has had her work com­mis­sioned af­ter win­ning a com­pe­ti­tion to celebrate the 800th an­niver­sary of the Magna Carta.

Cristina Bree, from Chal­font St Giles, took part in a mu­ral com­pe­ti­tion run by the En­vi­ron­ment Agency and won the What the Magna Carta Means To­day cat­e­gory.

Schools and col­leges in Run­nymede were asked to de­sign two com­mem­o­ra­tive mu­rals and the win­ning de­signs were painted by artist He­len Brady, from Inspired Spa­ces, on the walls of the lock- keeper’s house at Bell Weir Lock, in Run­nymede.

An­drew Graham, wa­ter­way man­ager for the En­vi­ron­ment Agency, said: “The orig­i­nal idea of the mu­ral ac­tu­ally came from David An­drews, who is our res­i­dent lock-keeper at Bell Weir Lock.

“It has been great to see the wall trans­form into a fan­tas­tic piece of art­work which re­flects the mag­ni­tude of the Magna Carta and how it has af­fected law, pop­u­lar cul­ture and hu­man rights over the last 800 years.”
