The Cambridge Independent’s own mini moo cow-respondent has been out and about on Thameslink trains. The roving reporter travelled from Cambridge to Brighton to promote the Cows about Cambridge art trail, of which Thameslink is the official travel partner.
The cow-respondent found time to stop off at Brighton’s pier, relax on the beach with an ice cream and even pay a visit to Sea Life, Brighton, all despite the blustery weather.
Thameslink will have its own cow sculpture decorated along the theme of ‘Around the City’ which will be situated outside of Cambridge station. A second sculpture with the theme of ‘Strength in Numbers’ will be situated outside Great St Mary’s Church.
Another of the mini moos that people will be able to see on the art trail, was designed via a competition with Thameslink’s corporate charity, Mind.
The winner Alice Billington, who is a Mind Dorset volunteer, used flowers, butterflies and the human form to convey the path to wellbeing through the sculpture.
Library assistant Alice, who enjoys creating art in her spare time said ‘I was surprised to win. It’s really exciting to have my sculpture brought to life and then be able to go and see it and for others to see it too’.
