FOUR years and hundreds of hours since the project began, a mosaic started as part of a campaign to save Mayfield Swimming Pool is almost complete.
Two dedicated artists have worked hard to create the mosaic, which captures the community spirit of Mayfield and their love of the local pool.
The community was brought together almost four years ago when it rallied to save the Mayfield Pool from the closure proposed in a council report.
Artists Lisa Hyde-Mills and Angie Parkes were happy to get on board with the project, despite living in Wallsend and Carrington.
“[The mosaic] will be a really vibrant and fun display that reflects exactly how important the pool is to the community,” Mrs Hyde-Mills said.
Over the past four years, the project has attracted support from many local schools and community groups as well as locals who contributed creative ideas and designs that will form part of the finished piece.
The images range from flowers to mermaids and submarines, as well as words that are associated with water and pools.
The mosaic will run across the far wall, which spans 50 metres.
“So far, the designing and actual mosaic process has been the easy, pleasurable part,” said Mrs Parks.
The Save Mayfield Swimming Pool campaign volunteers are calling for help.
They are holding a working bee on Saturday, September 22 and Sunday, September 23. If you would like to help, email [email protected]南京夜网.
