CERAMIC fish created by visitors to Newhaven Fish Festival are now on display on the walls surrounding the West Quay.

The fish were made from clay as one of the activities at event.

Children and young people painted and glazed the fish when they attended the weekly Start Art Smart Art group at Newhaven’s Hillcrest Centre.

There are 60 fish in total to commemorate the Queen’s 60 years on the throne.

Local artist Carol Havard who has led the project and runs the art classes at the Hillcrest Centre said: “The fish have been positioned on the walls surrounding Newhaven’s West Quay to form a fish trail.

“I hope that the community of Newhaven and in particular those involved in the project will go to West Quay, find their fish and follow the trail.”

The Fish Festival is held in Newhaven and organised by Newhaven Community Development Association.

Event organiser Sally Foote said: “This is a fantastic project and a great way of commemorating the Queens’ Diamond Jubilee. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Veolia Environmental Services, Newhaven Town Council and Lewes District Council for their contributions towards funding this project for Newhaven.”
