‘Six groups of schoolchildren near to Oakridge Park, taking part in in a hoarding painting competition, have added a touch of colour to the hoardings surrounding Newcrest’s development in Milton Keynes. Three groups of children from Stanton School joined the project team on Tuesday to start the artworks, with three groups from Pepper Hill School decorating the remaining hoarding space on Thursday. Local artist Neil Keane of Arkade Graphics assisted with the design, the children’s artwork and finishing touches of the artwork.
The scheme is progressing well, working towards a summer 2016 completion. The works consist of a new Asda food store, a small parade of 5 retail units, external adjacent roadways, 3 bus stops and car parking areas adjacent to a recently constructed residential area.’
