The First Bench

With agreement from the other members of the Chorlton Revival group, it was decided that the first thing we should purchase would be a carved oak bench, dedicated to the late Harry Goodwin.  Harry was a local photographer who worked for the BBC in the 1960s and 70s and was a very popular figure within the community.

We commissioned a local chainsaw artist, Mike Burgess, to create a photography themed bench and we were delighted with the finished product.



Plans are underway for the first of the murals, working in conjunction with the Green Chorlton organisation.  This is aimed to be completed by the end of November. After this, we will then concentrate on the plans for the other murals.  We propose this being an evolving project, whereby the murals are painted on to mounted boards which can be unscrewed.  The idea currently is that the murals will change every six months with the boards being auctioned off to raise funds for Chorlton Revival.
