'The Spirit of Wimborne'
This partnership project was developed by Wimborne Minster and District Chamber of Trade, supported by East Dorset District Council, Wimborne Minster Town Council and Jordan and Faber Limited.
Wimborne is a town with an appetitie for cultural events, a strong community spirit and a forward looking and a positive approach to the future. The winning submission by Terry Whitworth was chosen for the vibrant and colourful way it has captured the spirit of Wimborne through its depiction of Wimborne's rich heritage, calendar of events and it's colourful people. The design succeeded in brightening and lighting up the centre of town whilst the building destroyed in the fire in June 2009 are renovetd.
Along with our committed local sponsors we invite you to enjoy the fantastic 27m long mural.
