Members of the art club entered a competition to design a mural spanning over three walls.

Rachel Gaw, youth worker, said: “The winning design was by Connor Reid, age 14, from Whitehaven School. Connor is a member of the art club and has shown a natural talent for drawing.”

She said members of the art club, along with volunteers Michael Southward, Keith Southward, Simon Lilly and Linda Gardiner completed the painting.

The project is just one of the activities organised by the art club, young people can also make jewellery and try their hand at paper mache bowl making.

The Harbour Project offers an arts award, which aims to support young people to enjoy the arts and develop creative leadership skills. The award is an accredited outcome for young people between the ages of 11 and 25.
