An Aberdeen primary school is hoping to secure funding for a mural to brighten up an old sub-station near a sheltered housing complex.
Kittybrewster Primary is aiming to team up with residents at Clifton Court for the project and win funding from the council’s participatory budget, known as UDECIDE.
Acting deputy head teacher Samara Kanca said: “Through Kittybrewster Primary School we’re working on an intergenerational project between our pupils and Clifton Court residents’ home.
“Outside Clifton Court there’s an old sub-station that doesn’t look very attractive and the residents are saying they’re not very happy about it. We thought we could bid for some funding to paint that.
“The idea is the older adults and the children would co-design a mural and then we would have an artist come and teach us painting and designing skills.
“We also hope to put in some beautiful flowers around it just to cheer up the whole area.
“I think Great Northern Road is such a busy road, it just doesn’t look very attractive or appealing.”
