10 children from the local community centre at St Luke’s have created some eye-catching artwork for Higgins Construction’s hoarding at its King Square Estate site in Islington.
The theme of nature was agreed with the children and they spent their time at the community centre putting their best design skills to the test.
Sarah Clark, senior resident liaison officer at King Square comments, “We are delighted with the eye catching and colourful drawings that the children have created for our hoarding. They are certainly brightening up the dreary winter months.”
The children were given the opportunity to attend an unveiling event where they could see for themselves the drawings in situ on the hoarding and the plaque with their names on.
Higgins has been contracted by Islington Council to carry out the King Square Estate development and regeneration scheme, which includes the construction of six new blocks delivering 140 homes - 98 affordable dwellings (93 for social rent and five shared ownership) and 42 private residential for sale. Other notable redevelopment works includes the refurbishment of the community nursery at Rahere House, creating communal storage areas, estate landscaping and public realm improvements.
