Neighbourhood, Community and Home

This mural celebrating tolerance and diversity in a proud and accepting multi-cultural community and neighbourhood is by Thornton Heath fashion designer Simon Carter @simoncarterltd  The designer volunteered to design the mural to deter fly tipping at a "hot spot" as well as to bring neighbours together. Simon said “his design was inspired ‘by the values of our diverse community’. Norbury Brook, that runs through the middle of Thornton Heath, seemed a good symbol to show the life and vibrancy of our neighbourhood”.  Residents and locals were galvanised by Thornton Heath Community Action Team (THCAT) thornton_heath_c_a_t  They worked with local artist, Van Dang @freeartUK to create a mural that has the brook running through it and enjoyed getting together in the street for a chat and refreshments.
The mural was funded by a grant to THCAT from The People’s Health Trust, 2018.
