Children enjoyed researching local history and transforming each class' designs into mosaics.

The piece of artwork was installed on a wall in Crown Glass Shopping centre in October.

Fran Newton came up with the idea of the mosaic to brighten up the town.

She said: "It was lovely. The children had a wonderful time.

"Up to 300 children were involved and asked to place certain pieces on the mosaic."

A number of organisations have supported the project including Nailsea Town Council and Nailsea Community Trust.
