Sea Week started yesterday and with it the community has a chance to create art.

The South Alive Community Group has hung a sea banner for people to decorate at the dog park on Elles Rd.

Group chairman Colin Anderson said the banner was to promote awareness of what a great resource the sea was and how important it was to protect it.

"It should be a wee bit of fun," he said.

The lycra material was donated by a local business for the project.

"Anyone can put something up there as long as they keep to the theme of the sea," he said.

Glenbrae Retirement Home and Hospital has started the decorating with an array of sea creatures and it was hoped kindergartens and playcentres would be the next to add to the artwork.

The material can be cut up at the end of March so people can keep their artworks.

Sea Week runs from March 1-9 nationwide and the banner will be up until the end of the month.
