Brockley Bites - Story overflow

Too... much... local news.

Polychromatic Spray

The Coulgate Street murals have been the subject of much debate since plans were revealed to redevelop the MOT centre on Brockley Road. We love them and the role they have played in defining Brockley. We wouldn't stand in front of the bulldozers for them, but there has to be room in Brockley for big colourful splodges of joy. When and if they go, we hope something equally happy will appear somewhere nearby. In the mean time, here's a film of their creation.

@Nick "the role they have played in defining Brockley" - past tense.

I have such fond memories of organising the painting of the murals by Known, and of putting the film together. Less fond was when we redid the Bob Marley mural and were accosted on a few occasions by beefy guys in flash cars concerned that Bob was going to disappear!

I can imagine Christmas at Anons house. "sorry Gran, you may well have defined our past but thats the cats chair" before tipping her onto the compost heap.

Keep them if we can or winkle out some dosh for new ones. Thanks awfully. While we're at it get them to fund a Hilly Fields final day that the Brockley Max couldn't stretch too last year. When thats sorted, cut my hedge.

The portrait of Maya Angelou is gawd-awful.

It would be better if it were redone.
