Marske Mosaic

This mosaic celebrating the heritage of Marske was unveiled in July 2019.

The mosaic was designed and built collectively by community groups, schoolchildren from Westgarth Primary School and Errington Primary School and artists Helen Jane Gaunt and Derek Mosey. The project was commissioned by local community group Marske in Bloom.
