Woodroffe School students add a splash of colour to Lyme Regis

ART students from The Woodroffe School in Lyme Regis have added a splash of colour to Langmoor Gardens.

The A-level students have spruced up the tatty boarding around the side of the derelict Regent Cinema with a colourful mural, which will go towards their final grade with exams having been cancelled due to the pandemic.

The mural features several different themes with each student designing their own section along a wave of octopus tentacles.

The project was organised by town councillor Cheryl Reynolds and art teacher Richard Vine, with the entire cost sponsored by businesses and individuals.

Cllr Reynolds said: “It was wonderful and such a privilege working with the students, Richard Vine, Mary and Pete on the Langmoor Gardens wall.

“The footfall in the gardens is huge and I was there all day, everyday with not one adverse comment.

“It has been indeed one of the most pleasurable experiences I have ever been part of. The students were faultless, hard working and their confidence flourished as the day went on.”
