In 1935, Eve Garnett the artist, illustrator and writer. painted a twelve-metre mural in the main room of Children's House. Across the wall, a line of children are seen walking along an East End street. At the end of the street they go through a door into a green wood where they can play freely. The mural shows the Lester sisters' social and educational ideals in graphic form and is an important part of Kingsley Hall's heritage.
The paintings are now dirty and damaged. In its present state the mural is a problem for the school - it could be a wonderful asset.
A report was commissioned to identify the work needed.
Currently plans for the necessary work are being establsihed.
