Netherfield Meeting Place - Artists Justin Neal & Bill Billings
In 1998-99 the regeneration Officer felt that the walls of this sport court needed an artistic feature. Justin Neal and Bill Billings were to design that feature, after lots of cleaning and preparing the surface of the walls, Justin and Bill decided the ball park needed an audience, "we wanted to use the children's faces as a means of creating an audience. We went to Langland School for two days working on self portrait project using hand mirrors". The children transferred their self portraits from paper to the wall.
The big end wall was designed with silhouetted red figures dancing and jumping for the ball, some shadow puppetry was used to make the children feel part of it.
