Jim and Shirley were a big part of the Thamesmead community as soon as they moved there in 1969. Their story is filled with amazing memories about the community and the different events they were part of. I decided to focus on their favourite memories including a ‘Bring a bottle party’ that they held at the community centre at Christmas.
I wanted to embrace the fun and bright colours that I could imagine would have been there. I also incorporated the Thamesmead town show banner as Jim and Shirley were a big part of the bringing that to life.
