The First World War inspired mural on the shelter was created thanks to the hard work of 10 young people from the Royal British Legion youth division.

Youth officer Leah Templeman said the Chatteris in Bloom team contacted her to ask if any of RBL youth members would like to get involved and a team got to work in the evenings over a period of two weeks at the East Park Street shelter

Paint was donated from the Street Pride team.

Ms Templeman said: “It took about 16 hours with 10 young people aged 12 to 17 and four adults.”
