Mural Takes Shape at Frinton-on-Sea Station

Monday, 3 June 2013

A mural is taking shape at Greater Anglia’s Frinton-on-Sea station to mark the 125th anniversary of the railway arriving at the Essex Seaside town.

Artist David Nash is kindly giving his time and expertise to create the mural over the coming days.

The mural will showcase iconic images associated with this beautiful seaside resort, including the colourful beach huts, the clock shelter, the local church and a steam locomotive which once operated on the line.

The project is a joint initiative between Frinton-in-Bloom, Frinton Residents’ Association, the Essex and South Suffolk Community Rail Partnership and train operator Greater Anglia, brought about in order to celebrate this important anniversary.

Sham Rashid Greater Anglia’s Area Customer Services Manager said:
 
“We are delighted that this stylish mural is taking shape at Frinton-on-Sea, it will enhance the station environment for everyone who visits, creating an eye-catching gateway to the town.  I’d like to thank David Nash for his incredible generosity in giving his time and skill to create this mural. Frinton-in-Bloom, the Frinton Residents’ Association and the Essex and South Suffolk Community Rail Partnership have also been a great support in bringing this project to fruition, so I’d like to thank them for their efforts too.”
