After the success of the Winchester Street mosaic we are very pleased to be able to create another community historical mosaic for Greencroft Street.
The photo above shows the site of the mosaic – many thanks to Salisbury City Council for giving us permission to use the side wall of the garages. Thanks to them too for providing some of the funding. The other funders were Wiltshire Council, Friends of St Thomas’ Church and Salisbury & Stonehenge Tours.
The design for the mosaic feaures pictures of what life was like on Greencroft Street in the 1940s-1960s, and some of the characters and stories of the area. These have all come from local people, either from our archive or from a design workshop held in September 2017 where people born on the street had the chance to share their stories.
We will be running a drop-in day open to all ages on Saturday 4th November 10am-4pm to finish the border for the mosaic. At this drop-in day there will be the chance to make a mosaic coaster to take home for a donation of £5 (to pay for the materials).
Come along to learn a new skill; socialise, and make something for the whole community to enjoy! For more information, contact Clare Christopher
