Campaigners who won their fight against a developer’s proposals to turn Kensal Rise Library into homes and a community hub are set to celebrate their victory in art.
The Friends of Kensal Rise Library is joining forces with the Walls of Colour Project, a collaborative painting initiative, to produce a ‘community masterpiece.’
The event, entitled ‘No to Planning Permission’ will be at the pop-up library in Bathurst Gardens from 10am-1pm this Saturday (28).
Margaret Bailey, who chairs FKRL, said: “Our community contribution will record this victory in art and also be an opportunity for the community to celebrate and record this important milestone in the campaign.
“We are very pleased to combine with other communities in Brent and through art show what is important to us.”
