The Catch Me Who Can Art Trail was officially launched on Bridgnorth’s High Street this Saturday.
The rain held off and the atmosphere was celebratory as all involved witnessed the grand finale to months of hard work on the community-wide project.
Artists, sponsor companies, town councillors and local residents all turned out to mark the occasion, as Bridgnorth Mayor, Ron Whittle, opened the town’s two-mile walking trail.
Bridgnorth Endowed art teacher, Mrs Rhodes, who headed up the group of A Level students that produced two of the statues, also attended the event.
Mrs Rhodes comments: “The Bridgnorth Statue Trail has been an exciting community project that I have been involved in with my Year 12 art students this year.”
“The students worked so hard,” she continues, “with commitment, dedication and teamwork to create a fantastic piece of artwork that will be showcased in our town for five years.”
