Our Living Wall

Our Living Wall is a community art wall, that doesn’t have to be "arty"!

It is an ever-evolving jigsaw canvas which encourages children to express themselves and be part of something bigger and fun!

Every child & family can have a piece of the jigsaw, and decorate it however they wish. The piece will be displayed on the wall, before being photographed and displayed here and on digital photo frames next to the Living Wall.

After about 4 months the jigsaw piece can be taken home, or we can recycle it for the next family.

This marvellous project has been made possible by funds from Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children's Charity and the Burdett Trust for Nursing. The project is part of the Marvellous Nurse Inventing Room programme where 12 teams, led by children's nurses, across the UK are working on innovation projects with the aim of helping children and young people to be happier not just healthier.

Please come and join us in this exciting adventure!

Your project team: Sabine Schwaebisch, Gemma Radnor, Christina Lea, Kathy Patching and Kerry Davies
