The trail was part of the Stimulate Your Senses 2013 arts week, run by the With One Voice Partnership, a collaboration of four schools in the Horfield and Lockleaze areas.

It was held at community venues involved displays of artwork and photography, along with the chance for families to try out different types of art themselves.

At each of the nine locations, large painted apples designed by pupils at local schools were a feature and arts trail visitors were encouraged to have their photo taken with each apple.

Among those taking part was Bristol North West MP Charlotte Leslie.

The arts week continued  with exhibitions and a ‘try out an arts activity’ on Wednesday, followed by a performing arts showcase, both at Orchard School.

Organiser Helen Howard said: “The arts trail really caught the imagination of families, with the apples proving to be a real attraction. We have enjoyed bringing arts into the communities of north Bristol and Filton and we know the families enjoyed taking part.”

The With One Voice Partnership is a collaboration between Orchard School, Upper Horfield Community School, Filton Avenue Infant and Filton Avenue Junior schools.
