Chorley’s market has been turned into a work of art, thanks to local schoolchildren.

The town’s renowned covered market has been captured as a collage which has gone on display in a new community noticeboard at Chorley Bus Interchange.

The collage is the work of children from Balshaw Lane Community Primary School, Euxton.

David Woodroffe, interchange manager, said: “We’d like to see more works of art displayed round our walls and posters advertising community events. We have a great facility here and we want people to use it.”

Councillor Adrian Lowe, who oversees the markets at the council, said: “This is a fantastic piece of work by the children and deserves to be on show to the wider community.”

The youngsters from Class 7, a mix of Years 4 and 5, made the collage as part of a themed creative week.

The school’s deputy head teacher Mrs Liz Darnell, said: “They thought about the different stalls and each designed their own in their sketch books before choosing materials and each making their own different square which we then put together as one big collage.”
