Artistic pupils from a Nailsea primary School have been working with an artist to create a mural.

Pupils from year two and six at Golden Valley Primary School have designed a piece of artwork for the town centre.

Fran Newton, a volunteer with Nailsea in Bloom, came up with the idea for the scheme, which has been sponsored by Nailsea Town Council and Nailsea Community Trust.

More: Children’s collages will bring history to life in Nailsea.

The aim of the project is to brighten up the wall adjacent to the village green and children are designing pictures based on Nailsea life - its history, nature and wildlife and Nailsea as it is today.

Pupils worked with David Bowers from Mosaic Madness to create a mural based on nature in Nailsea and they enjoyed researching wildlife to inspire their designs.

Pupils from The Whiteoak Academies of Hannah More Infants and Grove Juniors have also created three panels for the artwork.
