Community Engagement at Ebrington Site

As part of our continuous Community Engagement Strategy at Ebrington former Primary School site, we teamed up with two local Primary Schools to create pieces of artwork based on the theme ‘Our Community’ to display on the site hoarding.
Anita Conway, Director of Development at Radius commented ‘ It has been great to get the local schools involved in the project and to see the talent and enthusiasm of the children involved in creating the artwork. Radius looks forward to continuing to work with the schools on future projects to ensure this new development integrates positively with the existing community’.
Mr Brian Guthrie, Ebrington PS said ‘It was a pleasure to become involved in the project with Radius Housing and P&K McKaigue Construction Ltd. There was a real working buzz when pupils got out to complete their section, and much excitement when it came to the unveiling on site. We hope the local community enjoy the artwork while it is in place, and we are very excited to get it back to school once all the building work is complete. Thank you!’
Alissa Williamson, Oakgrove Integrated PS added ‘Oakgrove children thoroughly enjoyed being involved in the project. The children worked together to think of local landmarks that represent all the communities the city. They then took a walk around the site and decide that they should also include images of the local sculptures to show the integration of the new houses with the established estate. The children then drew and painted the landmarks around the River Foyle. Many thanks!’
Padraig McKaigue, Director, P&K McKaigue Ltd noted ‘We’re delighted to be working with the neighbouring schools creating a positive and lasting social impact involving the young people from the local community. The artworks are fantastic and are proudly displayed at the entrance to our site. Community Engagement forms an integral part of our project delivery’.
