Dartford Mural lifts the spirits

Dartford Back door Murial

Collaboration between the Cadets and Badgers at St John Ambulance Dartford and the town’s local youth group has transformed a once drab garage door into a fantastic piece of contemporary artwork.

'We were approached by an area youth worker for Dartford, during the Dartford Festival as they were keen to know if we had an art project they could work on,' Joanne Eade of the Dartford Division says. 

After discussions with all the members it was agreed that our old garage door at the back of the premises was in need of some 'TLC' and a revamp. With lots of input from our Cadets and Badgers, the final design was chosen. The result is a bright, fun and modern outlook. 

We would like to say a huge thank you to graffiti artist, Mark Peachey, for all his work and involvement in the project.’

The great news is the division's relationship with the Dartford Youth Council is far from over. St John Ambulance Dartford will be providing the Youth Council with first aid training and in return, with additional assistance from Homebase, they are going to regenerate the front garden at Serena Hall.
