The original Footbridge Project was opened in 2021.Two years on, another competition was held and Footbridge Gallery 2.0 recently opened with a new range of amazing art works. We are very proud to be a sponsor of this new gallery of creative local talent.

Lion Stella has arranged for the overall UK winner of the Lions’ Peace Poster competition to be displayed in a prominent position on the bridge. The work is the artist’s interpretation of the competition theme “Dare to Dream” and was created by Isabella Golez of St.Richards Catholic College.

The Footbridge Gallery is a community arts initiative selecting artworks through a competition with residents in Rother and Hastings. These are then displayed as printed artwork. For the original project, the Club contributed funds for a community gallery at one end of the bridge where pictures change monthly with art from schools and community groups.
