To commemorate the hard work of the incredible keyworkers, NHS and community, Barratt London have installed a pair of wings at their Millbrook Park development, in Mill Hill. The Mayor of Barnet, Councillor Caroline Stock, and local hero, Paul Edwards unveil the instillation, with a small ceremony. The public are invited to pose for a selfie in front of the mural, which is on Bittacy Hill.
The Covid-19 pandemic has seen thousands of ordinary people from the local community transform into heroes overnight, with many individuals going above and beyond to help-out a neighbour in need. Barratt London’s new hoarding design, illustrated by Chloe Kirton, has been created to reflect this, allowing individuals from the community to transform into an angel through the camera lens, and post their thanks for the key workers who have kept the community safe during such a difficult time.
Ed McCoy, Marketing Director for Barratt West London comments: “We are pleased to dedicate our hoarding to the local community, who have demonstrated such strength, kindness, and resilience throughout lockdown. The mural is open to everybody to interact with and take a photograph as a reminder of Mill Hill’s community spirit during the most difficult year we have faced.”
Barratt London revealed the new hoarding on Tuesday 8th September 2020 with the help of honorary guests including The Worshipful Mayor of Barnet Cllr. Caroline Stock and Paul Edwards, who has been locally hailed as a Covid-19 hero. Paul spent lockdown delivering PPE to hospitals and supporting shielding families with food deliveries, alongside continuing his voluntary role at the local foodbank.
Paul Edwards comments: “It is an honour to represent the local heroes who have taken time to make sure that the community remains healthy, happy, and supported. I would like to thank Barratt for this kind gesture, which will bring the community together to celebrate how far we have come and how much has been achieved throughout this difficult year.”
The Worshipful Mayor of Barnet, Cllr. Caroline Stock adds: “Residents such as Paul, who have gone out of their way to help vulnerable neighbours and families throughout lockdown, are an asset to the Barnet community. The Covid-19 crisis has demonstrated the importance of a community spirit, and I hope that the Barratt London mural helps to maintain this throughout the months ahead.”
