30 Jul 2010 Celebration of Official Launch of Bollards Project

Speech given by Graham Burgess at the official launch party for the Whitchurch Bollards project.

With 8 bollards already painted (some are just ‘test’ ones but even they sure look good!), the Whitchurch Bollards project is off to a colourful start!

The manager of the project, John Buckley, is a founding member of Whitchurch Arts. Steve Miller, an artist from Whitchurch Arts has been hired to carry out the painting work of some of the bollards.

On the occassion of the official launch of the project last evening at the White Hart, who are the first sponsors of two bollards, our Director of Arts Graham Burgess made a short congratulatory speech which included some background to bollards in general. The whole of his statement is in the attached document.

Congratulations to John and indeed the community of Whitchurch for a fantastic and creative start to the project. A full report on the launch is on the town’s official website HERE.
