Hoping mural will be the first of many

The organiser of a "community wall mural project" is hoping the first wall at the rear of 18 Blackwall Rd, Woy Woy, will be the first of many.

"My motto is: Making Woy Woy beautiful one wall at a time," said Ms June Killington of Woy Woy.

Ms Killington is currently seeking donations for the project.

She said that two professional artists would be involved with the project, which had the support of the Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch.

"We intend to beautify an ugly graffitied wall that's in a busy thoroughfare and seen by tourists and pedestrians."

The wall is in a laneway that runs beside Ms Tesch's electorate office through to Chambers Place.

Ms Killington said the artists were local residents Angie O'Sullivan and Naomi Veitch who were donating their time.

"We're asking for donations towards the paint, paint brushes, anti graffiti sealant and scaffolding, as we have no Council funding.

"It's a massive job and many locals have offered to help with the painting.

"We want to start the work as soon as possible.

"I had just been looking at this wall for so long and realising that it's probably the ugliest thing in Woy Woy - so I took action.

"It's so close to the ferry, that's about to have a $5.4 million upgrade, with tourists walking past it constantly and our locals on the way to the shops and the train station."

Ms Killington said she had contacted the owner of the wall and had been given permission to beautify it.

She said, in discussing a design with the artists, her only specification I had was: "No pelicans".

"I want a wall that's going to look so fabulous that people will come from miles around to have their photo taken next to it."
