A PORTISHEAD railway poster has become the subject of a 500-piece jigsaw on sale in the town’s High Street.
The poster was the winning entry of a 2012 competition, organised as part of a campaign for the re-opening of the Portishead to Bristol railway line.
Designed and painted by artist Bryan Evans, who lives in Slade Road, it depicts Portishead past and present and is designed for display in railway stations across the country to entice people to visit the town.
Bryan said: “I am delighted that my painting could soon be in households in Portishead bringing people hours of fun and pleasure.”
Matt and Rosemary Westley, who run stationers Morgan-Westley in High Street, worked with Bryan to bring the jigsaw to fruition.
