GRAFFITI expert Flava joined forces with youngsters in Podsmead for a day of spray painting.

The event, at the former Jet and Whittle pub on Wednesday, saw the Gloucester star show off his skills.

Throughout the day Flava also helped the youngsters paint a mural on the hoardings, based on the theme of The Future of Podsmead, as part of a community project led by Podsmead Big Local and GreenSquare.

Matthew Atkins, 4Ward2Work co-ordinator at GreenSquare, said: “The hoardings at the site are simply wooden panels and they aren’t a particularly attractive site. However, we thought they would provide a fantastic blank canvas for some budding local artists to show their spray-painting skills.”
