09.02.22 To celebrate the rebuild, the C T Baker Group launched a community art mural project to brighten up the area surrounding the construction site at Kerridge Way. We invited many local artists, schools and organisations to express their interpretation of the question “What makes Holt special to you?”, decorating the area in view of local residents and passersby.
Carl Milton, Managing Director of the C T Baker Group, says “We were overwhelmed with the response the art project received and we’re so grateful to everyone who donated their time to make it a reality. The artists have used a plethora of colour and creativity to capture the idyllic scenery and iconic landmarks of Holt, which promotes our town in such a positive way.”
The first instalment of murals was unveiled today with Nick Baker, Senior Family Director, commenting “The murals show a clear sense of community spirit found in our town. The local community supported our team members and nearby residents on the night of the fire, and these artistic creations sum up the continuation of this spirit beautifully. We would like to thank the artists, and also Havercroft Construction Ltd for their donation of materials towards the project”.
The art murals will be on display throughout the duration of the rebuild, with a completion date of Winter 2022.
