Berkeley Primary School piant the Castle!

Local school children paint mural at Berkeley Castle

School children from Berkeley Primary School have created a masterpiece at Berkeley Castle.

The log shed at the Castle has been transformed into a fabulous craft space and wet weather shelter by two combined local projects.

On June 21st 2011, a local team from Magnox South Limited built a plaster-board frame within the brick built log shed, as part of a team building day for 20 staff based at the Berkeley Centre of Magnox South. The boards were then skimmed and painted, and on Wednesday 6th July, teaching assistants from Berkeley Primary School began to prepare the walls for the ‘Berkeley Mural’ designed by the children at the school.

Whilst the Castle is open to visitors, children from Berkeley Primary School painted the mural onto the walls. It took just six days to complete and is already in use by visitors to the Castle.

Head Teacher, Debbie Marklove said:
“The children have been really inspired by the idea of painting a ‘Berkeley Mural’ on the walls at the Castle. It was  a challenge to complete the mural before the end of term, but we loved getting involved at the Castle and are delighted with the finished result!”

The mural is a real feature, and creates a fabulous backdrop for the Castle Arts & Crafts sessions taking place in the log shed every Thursday throughout August.
