Our 'EPIC' Painting of Colourful Dragon's Bridge, Cumbria

Date published: October 2, 2018

Our EPIC Painting division, in Cumbria, recently took part in the repainting of a bridge for a socio-economic project in Cleator Moor, Cumbria. This charitable work was done for an organisation called The Colourful North, which was organised through a charity that we were encouraged to work with. The work saw the repainting of a graffiti-clad bridge called Dragons Bridge – the project had asked this area to be repainted white so that it would be a blank canvas to allow local and young artists to have a fresh area to cover with colourful artwork! The operatives who worked on this project were Lewis Mills, Phil Harris and Jordan Suart.
