National competition win for Galashiels Primary Schools
Borders primary schools recognised at national Ivor Goodsite Hoarding competition.
Considerate constructors Hart Builders is delighted the hard work of seven primary schools in the Borders has been recognised with their win in the national Ivor Goodsite Hoarding competition. The colourful artwork that surrounds Eildon Housing Association’s development site at Huddersfield street was one of the winners of the 2019 Ivor Goodsite Hoarding Competition. Ivor Goodsite is the mascot used by the Considerate Constructors Scheme to promotion the construction industry with children.
Clovenfords, Burgh, St Peters’, St Margaret’s, Stow, Tweedbank and Langlee Primary schools painted the safety hoarding (fence) on the theme of why they love living in the Borders. The pupils have certainly shown us all the reasons why they do.
Alison Lowrie, Hart Builders and Eildon Community Benefits Officer, presented the schools with their award and said: “I am so pleased for all the children that took part. It has been a brilliant multi-school project, with whole schools getting involved, from planning and designing to painting the amazing artwork.
“There was fierce competition, with 83 entries from across the UK and Ireland, so for our site to be one of the winners is absolutely fantastic.
“What talented future artists we have in the Borders.”
A huge well done to all the schools from everyone at Hart Builders and Eildon Housing.
