LOVE FORTESS RD

Students at Acland Burghley love Fortess Road!


 

Shoppers were surprised, on Valentine’s Day, to be greeted with beautiful artworks celebrating the shops and shopkeepers of Fortess Road. In what we hope will be an annual tradition, students from Acland Burghley worked with professional artists to produce art works inspired by the slogan “I love Fortess Road”. These were judged by local artist, Natalie D’Arbeloff, with four students receiving vouchers for icecream sundaes from Ruby Violet, before all the artwork was taken to local shops to be displayed for Valentine’s Day!
