Ward Councillor Helen Carstens, in partnership with Spice4Life and 7 Star Energy Drinks spent Mandela Day on Bosmansdam Road redoing the mural along the wall.
“This has been in need of a redoing for a long time,” said Cllr Carstens “the paint has begun to look worn and a bright new look has been desperately needed, especially considering that this is one of the first things seen when driving down Bosmansdam.”
The day entailed a youth soccer group from Dunoon as well as artists and graphic designers tackling the wall. Because it has a sports theme, the soccer and baseball representatives from Abe Sher (for which the wall is the boundary) were invited to initial one of the many stars on the wall along with the soccer team.
“The upgrade to the wall will take much longer than 67 minutes and will be continued with for a number of weeks to come as the professionals continue with the artwork,” explained Cllr Carstens.
