Bring back our artwork

Bring back our artwork

After a tough year (to put it mildly) most residents of Rothwell have been over the moon to see local artist, Burley Banksy, creating artwork on BT boxes around the area. It’s a wonderful gesture of kindness that has been bringing a smile in difficult times.

It’s our understanding that a small number of complaints has led to BT painting over the boxes. We want to get the box repainted.

Why is this important?

We believe there are many more people who saw the piece of art as a ray of light, rather than something to be upset about.

We’d like to demonstrate to BT that the overwhelming majority of residents loved the art and we’d like to show the talented Burley Banksy that we support his work.

Have you guys seen this? Read the bit about the story behind the mix tape artwork 💔
I just can’t see how that would cause offence to anyone.
