… following the most highly participated poll on SE23.life so far - the votes from the 1st round of voting on the design for the proposed Forest Hill mural are in and much love has been given for ‘a touch of walrus’!!
(the above snapshot was taken on 1st Jan 2018)

To cover off any concerns around incorporating such an obvious reference to the @HornimanMuseum - we’ve not explicitly asked them about our mural aspirations, but they did declare themselves for #TeamWalrus on Twitter - so we’re going to assume that they’re broadly supportive as well
Voting closes on 07-Jan-2018, after which the final design will be submitted for crowdfunding.
Remember, if you make a mistake or simply change your mind, you can amend your vote by clicking the ‘Hide Results’ option at the bottom of the poll, and reselecting your option.
