A much loved local landmark has undergone and amazing artistic makeover in time for the town’s annual gala day.

Grangemouth and Skinflats Community Council has teamed up with other local organisations to make the “Banana Bridge Project” a reality and facilitate the painting of the crossing over the Grange Burn in Burnbank Road.

Following consultation with residents, a design was picked and artist Donna Forrester, who created Inchyra Park’s Spitfire design, spent 10 days working on the project – dodging in and out of torrential downpours and persistent drizzle during the stretch.

A community council spokesperson said: “Hopefully people agree the transformation by Donna Forrester is amazing. The mural shows some of the wildlife that exists in and around the burn.

"The area looked a bit run down, but now it’s a visual pleasure we hope our community can enjoy for years to come. We thank Donna and the community payback team who painted the railings.”
