Earlier this month, Erith proudly unveiled the new mural on the site hoarding surrounding Plot 18 of the Aylesbury Estate. Students from the Surrey Square Primary School teamed up with Notting Hill Genesis to design a piece of artwork as part of a community initiative.
Prominently displayed across the vibrant mural is the word “community”, a value which is held in high regard in this area of South London, and something Erith and Notting Hill Genesis are committed to maintain through the duration of this development.
It was clear that the young students were delighted to see their colourful design displayed on one of the UK’s largest regeneration schemes. Their hard work was celebrated with cake, juice and an Erith goodie-bag for each student.
Students from the school, including the designers themselves, were present at the unveiling, accompanied by representatives of Notting Hill Genesis, as well as Erith employees Steve Bennett (Project Manager), and Lily Glover (Regional Demolition Administrator).
Erith would like to thank all the staff members at Surrey Square Primary School for their support on this project, and most of all the young student designers who have added a splash of colour to the project while promoting a deeply cherished value.
Steve Bennett, Project Manager at the Aylesbury Estate, commented: “I am really pleased with how the hoarding design looks. It is not something I have seen on a site before, and after working on this project for the past two years, community really is an important value to the local residents. It was my pleasure to unveil the artwork to the students and want to pass on my thanks to everyone involved for their outstanding work.”
