Bus Stop Art

In most places bus stops are very dull buildings. However in some places they have been decorated in imaginative ways.  

These 2 bus stops are located on Coast Road between Berrow and Brean. In 2011 local artist Malcolm Dormer was commissioned by Berrow Parish Council to paint a newly repaired bus stop, which had been partially demolished when a car drove into it in 2010.  The theme he chose was Giraffic Park and features lots of giraffes having a fun day out at the seaside.

Presumably these are the names of the painters or maybe designers of the mural?
Underneath the names another one - Joann Bridges - is written and the date 2000
