Youngster’s winning design set to brighten up former Carlton park pavilion


A Carlton youngster will soon see her artwork emblazoned across the wall of a park pavilion after winning a local design competition.

Pupils at four local primary schools were asked to design artwork to brighten up the pavilion at Onchan Park, and Carlton Central Junior School pupil Heather Cully emerged triumphant after submitting her entry with the theme “Fun in the park”.

Heather’s award-winning design will soon be covering the large wall facing the play area once a graffiti artist is hired to paint on her fabulous design.

The winner was selected by local councillors Paul Wilkinson and Nicki Brooks who said they were “bowled over” by the quality of the 170 designs they had to judge from.

The event was one of many being organised by The Friends of Onchan Park – a group set up in 2016 to protect and enhance Oakdale Road Recreation Ground, known locally as Onchan Park, in Carlton.

As well as decorating the pavilion, the group also intend to apply for funding to create a community hub and also renovate the play area.
