Boards to Brighten up Construction at Hanley Fire Station

Local schools and youth groups are helping to make the construction site for the new community fire station in Hanley look brighter by painting different designs and pictures onto large boards.

"This is a fantastic and fun way to engage with our local community. The community groups involved have had some brilliant ideas and I can’t wait to see the finished art work."

Rehana Iqbal, Community Risk Reduction Officer

The large 8 x 4 metre boards have been provided by the contracted construction company, Thomas Vale.

The Thomas Boughey Children Centre and Kindergarten, Shelton Youth Service, Brighter Futures, Waterside Primary School and The V team at YMCA have all helped to paint the eight panels with artwork to reflect their involvement with the Service.

Rehana Iqbal, Community Risk Reduction Officer for Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service said: "This is a fantastic and fun way to engage with our local community. The community groups involved have had some brilliant ideas and I can’t wait to see the finished art work."

Rachel Burt, Manager at Thomas Boughey Kindergarten said: "We were delighted to be invited to participate with this project, the children are very excited about creating their board and can’t wait to see it displayed at the construction site."

The boards are due to be mounted at the site once building work begins for the new fire station.
