North Shore Academy,
The Lustrum Beck flood
defence scheme and the
Elderly Persons Village
Central First School,
Keepmoat is building 174 new homes in Norton Park and worked in conjunction with Stockton Council and the
North Shore Academy to artistically engage pupils.
The theme was devised in recognition of the Lustrum Beck’s long history of flooding and exciting plans to finally
begin flood defence work.
Pupils designed and painted the mural in the academy’s art rooms. Also encompassed in the design was a
colourful rainbow, representing the charity – Regan’s Rainbow Charity – set up in memory of a former pupil.
An Incredible Edible wall of living art was created by pupils at Central First School in Ashington, with the help of
Gentoo Construction and its client, Bernicia.
Gentoo’s Elderly Persons’Village Development on the former Ashington Hospital site has already been highly
scored by the Considerate Constructors Scheme.
Now the company has taken community value further by supervising 30 pupils to create this living wall, including
bird feeders, plastic bottle gardens and pallets filled with edible treats such as herbs, lettuce and strawberries.
