PUPILS from Parkside Middle School have been showing their creative sides after being set a challenge to brighten up an area of the Bromsgrove undergoing development.

Bromsgrove District Housing Trust (BDHT) laid down the gauntlet for students to produce artworks to be hung on hoardings at the new Roman Court – formerly the All Saints Garage – on Birmingham Road.

BDHT said it was delighted with the inspiring colourful creations the children had created.

Kaylee Dennis, the trust’s housing officer, said: “We were so pleased when the school welcomed the opportunity to create some artwork for us and we are blown away by the children’s imagination and creativity.

“From environmental pictures to drawings about friendship and the importance of being yourself, they’re all fantastic.”

Sarah Cheuk, teacher at Parkside Middle School, said: “The children really embraced this project from bdht.

“We’re so proud of the artwork that’s been produced and are really grateful for the opportunity.”

Work is now underway on the 61-home development which includes 19 much-needed affordable homes.
