Liberal Democrat councillor for Stroud Green Laura Edge has expressed her delight at the completion of the colourful mural that now brightens Quernmore Road, replacing an unattractive metal fence.

The mural, designed by a local artist and erected with the help of local young residents from Chettle Court, was put in place to bring colour and life to a previously derelict area next to the railway line in Quernmore Road, N4. It is hoped that it will discourage graffiti in the area and promote a feeling of safety, particularly at night.

Councillor Edge comments:

“I am very pleased indeed to see the completed mural, which looks even better and brighter than expected. It brings a great community feel to the road. We have been looking at ways to instil an atmosphere of safety and security into Quernmore Road. With this great project and our campaign for CCTV on the road, I really think that residents will begin to notice the difference. The kids at Chettle Court should be very proud of their work – it looks fantastic.”
