First Light

The street name Sunnyhurst is an old Anglo-Saxon phrase for a sunny grove of trees. Here, a sun disc with ancient markings represent stories of the community embedded in the passage of time, while three tree totems suggest a family unit. A sunburst illuminates the pathway between them. The first light of dawn casts its rays upon the landscape, bringing a new day full of hope and vitality.
