CREATIVE ARTWORK: Girlguides brightening up Radlett Station with colourful artwork

 Published on: 18th July 2021   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

Girlguiding Radlett were thrilled to receive an invitation to create artwork for the village station as part of a Govia Thameslink scheme. 

Working in partnership with Govia Thameslink Railway, Groundwork East has been assigned the duty of creating bright-coloured artworks for display at train stations all across Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Norfolk. 

Rainbows, Brownies and Guides from Radlett District are all taking part in the project by creating artwork for Radlett Station, and the finished pieces are expected to be put up on display by the end of this summer.

Each piece is based upon a stencil map of an aerial view of Radlett in both 1900 and in the present day. Girls from 3rd Radlett Rainbows, 2nd and 3rd Radlett Brownies made use of acrylic paints and sponges to achieve the desired effect.   

Using acrylic paints and sponges, girls from 3rd Radlett Rainbows, 2nd and 3rd Radlett Brownies worked hard to sponge paint the background images on to four boards. The final artworks are both very colourful and eye-catching.

One of the Brownies said: “My daddy will be able to see this every day when he goes to work!” 

Becca Huggins, landscape architect for Groundwork East, said: “We have had a wonderful time over the past few weeks working in Radlett with the Girlguiding groups there, and their leaders.  

“The girls were engaged and full of ideas for their artworks, and we were particularly impressed with how the groups worked together.”
