A proud Tamworth business has unveiled a stunning mural in time to commemorate Remembrance Sunday.

Bradley Scott Windows in Watling Street, Two Gates has shown off its amazing artwork complete with a soldier portrait and a Lancaster bomber.

The work produced by Graffiti by Title was started and completed on Friday, November 6.

Owner Andy Farrington beamed: “It is awesome, absolutely awesome. I am chuffed to bits with it.

“I have got poppies and planes, a portrait of an old soldier, a Lancaster bomber. It does look good. I don’t do things by halves. If you are doing it then you have to go all out.

“It is perfect for Sunday. It is just nice to show our respects. I am massively proud. My son was in the Army so I have got a connection there.

“These are tough times so hopefully it will go down well and bring a smile to people’s faces once again. It goes well with the Bulls Head opposite. It will be here for many years to come, it will stop here.

“I have wanted to do it for a while now. As soon as the lockdown was announced I thought ‘here we go’. We can’t go down to St Edithas like usual so I said I am going to do it and I have.  I go into town every year with my grandson. It is such a shame that we can’t this year, I am gutted but now we can stand outside here at 11am.

“I would have done the mural anyway I think to be honest with you but with the lockdown I just said right let’s get it done.

“Grafitti By Title is just amazing. I told him what I wanted and sent him some images through and he did the rest. He got here at about 10am and was done before dark. A massive thank you.”

Andy, who also has poppy colourings in his window designed by kids at the local Three Peaks Academy, unveiled a mural to Captain Tom Moore back in the first lockdown.

He recalled: “It just went crazy. He was such a hero and very topical at the time. What else can I say? What a man he is.

“I wanted to honour him because he is a hero. He is a World War Two hero and he has raised more than £30 million for our NHS. I thought this would be a fitting tribute so I decided to get it done.

“So many people turned up and were taking photos. I didn’t expect it to get that much of a reaction.”
