Reach Takes Part in Community Graffiti Project

Graffiti Art Project Clients

Clients from Reach Newark took part in a project organised by Newark and Sherwood District Council to spruce up two bridges on the Sustrans Track.

Barnby Road bridge and Clay Lane bridge were given a fresh new look thanks to two local graffiti artists, Reach clients and students from Barnby Road Academy and Newark Academy.

The bridges have been brightened up with positive themes of recycling and wildlife and the area is now a more welcoming, colourful place. There is also a Reach logo to spot!

Volunteer Manager Wayne Wilmot said: “It was fantastic to see our clients have the opportunity to get involved in a local art project that benefits the community. The graffiti artists were brilliant at explaining their techniques and the overall look of the bridge has changed dramatically from what it was before. One client told me he frequently walks past the bridge to check on the artwork to make sure it hasn’t been defaced – he said he feels really proud to have taken part in the project.”
