This project was to celebrate the Tour of Britain coming through the Pewsey Vale – en route from Devizes to Hungerford – and right through the length of the Pewsey Community Area.

It also was timed so that it would fall in the middle of the Pewsey Carnival fortnight and so became part of the Have a Go at Carnival programme of activities for young people.

Making the most of the already existing road closures in Pewsey, the team met at 5.30pm with Sue Faux of Faux Art, and the painting began – from King Alfred down to the Co-op entrance – fun was had by young and old all evening, whilst the Carnival lights went on and the Four Legged Race – or Parade! – took place.

The next day was fabulous – so many people turned up to watch the Tour of Britain pass through and the road art was talk of the county.
