Have you noticed the attractive new artwork hanging up at St Albans City Station?
It's the work of students from Heathlands School working in conjunction with The Arts Society St Albans as part of a nationwide initiative called Art@thestation.
This scheme aims to promote locally produced artwork in train stations across the country.
Over the last few years the society has been sponsoring the school - which is entirely for deaf children - to help with art projects, including buying them a movie camera to make short films.
The society's young arts co-ordinator Ros Hedges said: "We've had an association with Heathlands for several years, supporting them in various ways through assisting with the purchase of equipment for their art department.
"Working with Thameslink, we secured wall space for their artwork in their soon to be opened new waiting room on platform 1, as part of the station's redevelopment."
