A mural project adding a splash of colour to a disused toilet block in Kings Langley is nearly complete for residents to enjoy.
The mural located in Green Park was kickstarted by resident Ruby Lewis, who invited local children to help paint the mural bringing the generations of Kings Langley together.
Speaking to KingsNews, Ruby said the project is really coming together and it is great to see the children’s different interpretations of the village.
She said: “Collectively it’s about Kings Langley and the community as a whole. Because the children were in lockdown for such a long time over the past year it’s reiterating all the happy things they love about their local area.
“It’s been lovely to see some of the stuff they have come up with.”
Ruby added that although the mural wasn’t completed until August 31, she received several comments of praise from passers-by.
She said: “I can’t tell you how many people have walked past and said how much it has brightened up the place.
“There are lots of different thoughts from the children about Kings Langley and what they love about it.”
Kings Langley Parish Council councillor John Morrish praised the transformation so far.
He said: “From a very bland and dirty building has emerged something very original. Unsurprisingly everyone passing by stops to have a better look at the detail – like local shop Sweet as a Button – and how much better the building now looks.”
There is set to be a commemorative unveiling the first weekend of September to officially show off the new mural to the village.
