All the animals and shop fittings were created with recycled materials.

The sign on the shop window was created as a historical reference to the traditional hand painted shop window signs and utalised a ‘classic’ font. This was painted by Mr Dee.

Mr Dee has been creating graffiti work in public places, on walls for over 20 years. Mr Dee is currently chairman for Last Legs

Boz Phillips has been creating work for display in local shops and displaying the work of the community in public places in collaboration with local artists since 2004. She is currently the treasurer for Last Legs

When available Lee Hodgkiss is our official photographer and secretary for Last Legs.  Lee helps out as at larger community events.

We are DBS cleared,  have public liability. We also have a child protection policy in place.

David Jennings is the latest member of our team and provides help support and knowledge when we are building walls and items that require woodwork skills.
