Southbank Place Hoarding Competition
Southbank Place, in partnership with Walnut Tree Walk Primary School, were delighted to unveil this year’s entry into Ivor Goodsite’s Hoarding Competition. The ceremony took place on Sutton Walk, close to the development, on 13thJune 2018.
12 pupils from the Walnut Tree Walk Primary School Art Club participated in the unveiling, which was also attended by Cllr Christopher Wellbelove, and Mrs Anne Sassoon, Mayor and Mayoress of the London Borough of Lambeth.
The competition is open to any developments within the Considerate Constructors Scheme, and last year the competition received entries from 70 contractors, involving over 3,500 in the scheme.
This is the second year that Southbank Place, a development being built by Canary Wharf Contractors, has supported the primary school in the competition, following 2017’s winning entry. This year, the children wanted to theme the hoarding around London buildings, and all children worked on one board with a partner, where they chose a building to focus on. Each board was divided into separate squares where every child drew their own ‘abstracted’ parts of their chosen building in a variety of ways, using only three colours of their choice.
Petrona Wickham, Director of SLPN at Canary Wharf Group plc, comments, “It has been a joy to work with Walnut Tree Walk Primary School again, further improving the strong links that already exist between Canary Wharf Contractors and the surrounding Lambeth community. I have high hopes for this entry and we’re hoping for another win!”
A contribution of each entry into the competition is donated to the Child Accident Prevention Trust, the UK’s leading charity working to reduce the number of children and young people injured in accidents.
