Mural unveiling at Pinkie Farm Convenience Store

SONY DSCThis superb mural, created by many of Pinkie St. Peter’s pupils, was unveiled today at Pinkie Farm Convenience Store. The mural depicts many scenes from local history. This fine artwork certainly brightens up the entrance for all visitors to the shop and highlights the artistic skills of Pinkie pupils.

SONY DSCAll pupils were very kindly given a goodie bag by Pinkie Farm Shop, who are having a Kids Party tonight.
