In 2018, we were part of a team that delivered an award-winning Healthy New Town (HNT) project in Whitehill & Bordon. This involved working with several local schools to identify left over spaces along their walking routes to school. One of these spaces was then transformed into community garden for the summer months. We helped design and produce a vinyl floor graphic that reflected children’s ideas, introduced raised planter beds that were tended by local people and erected a set of temporary wayfinding signs, based on children’s drawings and text. This three-month installation was a pilot project for the permanent “Green Grid, Green Loop” wayfinding scheme now in development.
