Paintings of north Kent's iconic landmarks brighten up community room
GIANT paintings of north Kent’s most iconic landmarks have been used to brighten up a community room.
Painted by 58-year-old Stephen Oliver, who studies at the Dartford Adult Education Centre, the paintings are on display in the newly-launched community room at Asda’s Dartford distribution centre, at Crossways Business Park.
The giant murals depict the Dartford Crossing, Ingress Abbey in Greenhithe, Brooklands Lake in Dartford and Greenhithe Village.
It took Stephen, who has been painting for six years, between two and four days to complete each work of art.
Community life champion at the Dartford Depot Helen Martirossi said: “We wanted to show local life and the Dartford Bridge as it plays a big part in the life of our depot.
“It’s great when local groups come in and see the paintings.”
Asda’s Dartford depot was the first in the country to offer use of its meeting rooms to charities and community groups for free.
