M20 Junction 10A team collaborates with local school for CCS success

Taylor Woodrow’s M20 Junction 10A project recently joined forces with The Norton Knatchbull School in Ashford for a winning entry in Ivor Goodsite’s Hoarding Competition.

The competition from the Considerate Constructors Scheme received over 80 entries from across the UK and saw entrants take on poignant, hard-hitting themes to really drive a message across their communities with some stunning, impactful artwork.

Students from the Art Department of the School produced some stunning artwork for the hoarding, which is adjacent to the ramp for a new footbridge across the A2070 that is part of the M20 junction 10a scheme. Their themes included:

• ‘Face Up’ which is themed around mental health and how we need to start talking about it more as everyone is fighting a battle of their own
• ‘Gems of the North Downs’ - a 1930s style Southern Railway poster celebrating the natural beauty of the North Downs and the railway heritage of Ashford
• ‘Rhino’ which was inspired by the rhinos that are at the zoo close to Ashford and aims to raise awareness that poaching has left us with only around 30,000 left in the world

Considerate Constructors Scheme Chief Executive Edward Hardy said: “Massive congratulations to all winners and runners-up of this year’s Ivor Goodsite Hoarding Competition. This competition offers a tremendous opportunity for those registered with the Scheme to collaborate with local schools and community groups to provide colourful and creative works of art across hoardings. Construction site hoardings are the ‘shop window’ of the industry, and it is excellent to see, through this competition, so many hoardings being used to communicate really important messages across our communities…”
