A BT cabinet in Trinity Street has been turned into a work of art as part of a council-run scheme to spruce up local street furniture.

As part of a bid to stop graffiti and fly-posters – and with funding from Borough & Bankside Community Council's Cleaner Greener Safer scheme -local artist Morganic has painted one BT box on Trinity Street with an impressionist-style image of Henry Wood Hall and the King Alfred statue in Trinity Church Square.

His next target is to decorate another BT Openreach cabinet on Borough High Street.

Southwark Council wants local residents in Borough and Bankside to alert them to more telecoms cabinets in need of a make-over.

The Trinity Street piazza was officially opened at the end of last year after a £160,000 makeover.

More recently the piazza has benefitted from the attention of the Pimp Your Pavement campaign launched by SE1 guerrilla gardener Richard Reynolds.
