A LOCAL artist led a group of gardeners in creating a mural at the city's allotments.

Fred Fieber painted a colourful display of vegetables for the Allotments and Gardens Association Salisbury (AGAS) over the weekend of June 22 and 23.

The creation of the Salisbury River Park meant that AGAS members had to find a new home for their well loved shop, which is now at Fisherton Farm Allotments.

One of their shipping containers was particularly in need of brightening up, and so their team approached Studio Response to see if they could help.

Studio Response has curated new artwork across the River Park including a Tech Moon's central car park mural and Mr Fieber's coach park painting.

Residents were invited to lend a hand with the artwork, which used a palette designed by South Wilts Grammar School pupils working with local artist Zac Newham.

The Young Gallery in Salisbury Library has a free exhibition about the new artworks for the River Park which runs until August 31.

Funding for these murals was provided as part of the Salisbury River Park project, which is being delivered by the Environment Agency, in partnership with Salisbury City Council and Wiltshire Council.
