Cash boost for Axminster eyesore project

Plans to put up a giant mural at Websters Garage looks set to go ahead next month

PLANS to give Axminster’s worst town centre eyesore a facelift have received a big financial boost.

Two recent donations have put the Websters Garage art project within sight of its �5,000 fund raising target.

Organisers have received �500 from the Axe Vale Festival and

a further �150 from the town’s primary school as the result of a non uniform day – taking its total contribution to community arts this year to �300.

Project organiser Tim Leat was delighted with the latest donations and added: “We are still plugging away. We need a minimum of �500 still, but if could raise a bit more than could add to plans.”

It is hoped to start work on putting up the colourful mural around the building’s fa�ade in the New Year.
