Museum volunteers on the Heritage Bins Project were kept busy recently sanding and painting the base coats on 44 gallon drums. These will later be sold as a fundraiser for the museum. Once decorated, the bins will be positioned around Port Alfred as refuse bins, sponsored by local companies.
The drums are to be decorated by local schools and art groups as a way to include the community in the project and the theme is to be “Our Heritage”. Local artists and art teachers are encouraged to take part in this initiative to create awareness of the cultural diversity in our town.
The drums will be auctioned in September, around Heritage Day, and we hope that local businesses will support this initiative to make our town a cleaner and more colourful place.
