Colourful illustrations have been added to a wall at a local recreation ground for visitors to enjoy.

The street art mural has been displayed in Park Street Recreational Ground, in Park Street Lane, St Albans, after the parish council received funding from the district’s Visible Street Scene initiative.

On the Level Productions, an organisation that provides street art initiatives for young people and also created a series of murals at St Albans station, was chosen to create the artwork.

Work on the mural began in November and depicts activities that take place in the park.

Park Street parish councillor Bill Pryce said: “The mural has greatly improved the look of the area for the local community – where previously there was just a blank, grubby white wall we now have a colourful piece of art which reflects what goes on in the park.”

Being ill sucks. No matter what’s got you down – the flu, a broken bone, diabetes, cancer – it’s a horrible place to be. Your body is weaker and less capable. The drugs you take mess with your mind and your moods and sometimes can make you feel even worse than when you started. Mental ill-health is no different. The brain is an organ, and like any organ, it doesn’t always function to the medical standard of “normal”. Mine certainly doesn’t.

Recently we, as a family (minus two of the kids), visited The Lodge RSPB reserve in Sandy, Bedfordshire. I had never been before, which is perhaps amiss of me as a birdwatcher as it is the headquarters of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds or RSPB and only 45 minutes drive from home.
