After submitting two entries to the Mural Design Competition organised by the Medway Watersports Trust (The Strand) 3rd year Fine Art student Sharmaine Kwan was delighted that both of her designs were selected to be painted on the car park wall.

Geoff Waters, Trustee Operations, Medway Watersports Trust commented: “Sharmaine Kwan has designed and painted two high quality murals for the development of Medway Watersports Centre at the Strand Leisure Park in Gillingham, establishing from the outset a high standard for future artists to aspire. It is with much pride that I write to emphasize the impact Sharmaine’s contribution has had on the improved environment for the centre and its adjacent carpark, which will be officially celebrated and formally ‘opened’ by the Sport and Cultural Minister Tracey Crouch MP on Saturday 1 April.”
The unveiling event, to which the press and VIPs were invited, took place at Medway Cruising Club, Approach Road, The Strand, Gillingham, Kent ME7 1ET and will also include watersports, climbing, orienteering, archery, and a family BBQ.
