LOCAL SCHOOLCHILDREN HAVE VISITED BARKING TOWN HALL TO SEE THEIR ENTRIES FOR THE 2017 PAINT THE HOARDING COMPETITION PUT ON PUBLIC VIEW.
We are the main contractor for the refurbishment at Barking Town Hall and the national competition is organised by the considerate constructor scheme.
Over 60 designs were put forward from Robert Clack School in Dagenham and St Joseph's RC School in Barking and the winning entry from each school has now been painted and erected to form part of the perimeter fencing around the landmark site in the town centre.
Leader of Borough of Barking and Dagenham Council, Councillor Darren Rodwell, was one of the judges who selected the winners.
He commented: "I am so proud of the work pupils from our schools have done to grace the hoardings. This shows the young people not only understand our past, but are playing an active role in shaping the future. This is a sterling example of the council, private business and the community working together to bring about improvements in our borough."
Photos have now been taken which will be submitted to the CCS Judging panel for them to choose the final winners.
