Young Artist’s Vision for Edgware

At Edgware, we are working with the Edgware Town Centre Partnership to create a sustainable and spirited town centre that will become a destination for residents and visitors and support local businesses through a revitalised high street.

Pupils from Edgware Primary School presented their ideas for the future of Edgware, creating an exhibition with everything from paintings and drawings to outstanding sculptures. The children’s enthusiasm for what they want from their town centre was palpable, and their creative ideas will remain on display at the Broadwalk Centre until Friday, 9th of December.

Jack Pritchard, Director at Howells, said: ‘We were very glad to sponsor this launch at Edgware Primary School and have been impressed with the high calibre of artwork and ideas presented here today. We hope that this art exhibition has given local children a chance to have their say on the future of Edgware and maybe created a few new aspiring designers in the process!’

Matthew Coveney, Development Manager at Ballymore, said: ‘We enjoyed working with Edgware Primary School and getting an idea of what local children would like to see in their new town centre. It is a fantastic way for the local children to learn more about their area and see that they can make a difference. As we work towards sharing our next round of designs with the local community, it is important that a range of views are heard and explored; we look forward to creating more opportunities for everyone to have their say on the future of Edgware.’

Alison Jacob, Headteacher at Edgware Primary School, said: ‘It’s been great for our pupils at Edgware Primary School to be able to participate in this activity. They have learnt a lot about design, architecture, and sustainability through this process and also had a chance to talk about what they want for the future of their community. Edgware belongs to all of us, young and old, and we would like to thank the development team at Ballymore for incorporating the voices of children into their consultation.’
