A PROJECT to repair the flood defences in Wisbech has proved a unique gallery opportunity for some of the town's students.
Youngsters from Wisbech Grammar School have added a splash of colour to hoardings along North Brink behind which a six-month project to repair corroded defences is taking place.
The students have crafted paintings, photos, sculptures, textiles and graphics for the project.
The school's head of art, Mick Stump, said: "I was delighted to get the opportunity to have the work seen by a wider audience.
"It is particularly good for the pupils to see their work displayed in an out of school venue."
The school was approached for their art work by project contractors, Interserve Project Services Ltd.

The company's project liaison officer Monica Raine said: "We thought that it would be a nice opportunity to decorate the hoarding and give the guys an opportunity to display some art work in a public place that people are going to see."
She added that some of the people living near the North Brink chose the artwork for the "tunnel of talent" outside their front doors.
