13th June 2016
We had the great pleasure to contribute towards an exciting project run by the Budleigh Salterton Decorative & Fine Arts Society. The project involved several primary and secondary schools across Devon, some of whom wrote chapters of a story involving three main characters and a dog who travel to Africa and encounter robotic drones and poachers, and have a marvellous adventure. Other schools wrote poems, provided illustrations or, like Mill Water, painted large scale murals depicting scenes from the book.
The book, which is the latest in the Jurassic Heroes series, is called Burning Ivory and is the third instalment in the series, all of which have been written by talented young people from three local primary schools.
The project culminated in the publication of the book and a launch held at St Peter’s church on 13th June 2016. The Mill Water mural took centre stage at the church during the launch, and was much admired by representatives from participating schools, local residents, members of the public and Mill Water governors.
The welcome we received from the local community and the organisers of the project was overwhelming, and most of the comments revolved around how talented and creative our young people are. Well done to Class 10 who painted the mural and each received a copy of the book.
It was a lovely project to be involved with and even better to work with other schools in our local area. The murals will go on display soon around Budleigh Salterton, and will stay on display throughout the summer
