The fate of York Road market in Southend-on-Sea is still in the balance but the debt we all owe to the brave soldiers of yesterday and today is worthy of respect.
During the month of November local Artists will decorate the hoardings which presently cover the 1919 market built to provide work for soldiers returning from the first world war.
Founder member of Southend Credit Union, Christine Robinson, who came up with the idea said:
â€œArt enables us to give expression to our deepest feelings. With daily news of more soldier deaths it seems appropriate to mark their sacrifice.Â
I value the market especially since volunteering at the Credit Union.Â A call has been sent to local artists so the artwork will be complete by the end of November.â€
For further information, pleaseÂ contact Christine: email@example.com, or telephone 07855 417260. But if you are an artist and wish to add something appropriate, you can just turn up as long as you let the security man know you are there.Tags: Christine Robinson, honouring our soldiers, Southend Credit Union, southend-on-Sea, Your Road market
