Pupils from Fernhill Primary School have won a competition to have their artwork featured on temporary hoardings around The Meads shopping centre in Farnborough.

The project, which saw over one hundred designs submitted by the school, was organised by St. Modwen, the developer behind the regeneration of Farnborough town centre. Budding artists Kiara Robinson (age 8), Ceilidh Westwood (age 10), Harrison Tonks (age 7) and Rebecca Downer (age 9) saw their winning drawings of ‘The Meads in Spring’ on display in the heart of Farnborough, between Sainsbury’s and Kingsmead shopping centre.

Andy Wynn, centre manager at The Meads for St. Modwen, said: “We were thrilled to have such an overwhelming response from Fernhill Primary School and for the younger generation to be involved in the regeneration of Farnborough town centre. It’s fantastic to have the winners here to see their bright and lively designs.”

Alison Keeley from Fernhill Primary School said: “All the children really enjoyed creating their art work and the winners were both excited and proud to see their work displayed publicly”.

The first and second phases of St. Modwen’s redevelopment in Farnborough have been successfully completed and have seen Sainsbury’s, Travelodge, New Look and, most recently, JD Wetherspoon sign up to take space in a revitalised town centre.
