Students unveiled artwork designed to celebrate the best their area has to offer.

The #HelloHendon display was created to inspire pride in the area, and involved 36 students from Barnet and Southgate College.

Held on June 1, it was was visited by Deputy Mayor of Barnet Caroline Stock.

Cllr Stock said: “I was delighted to take part in this event and speak to some of the talented art students about their designs and the inspiration behind them.

“The artwork they have created truly demonstrates their talent and why Hendon is such a great place to live.”

The artwork, which spells #HelloHendon, is a culmination of a three month collaboration.

Students were briefed on the design process and asked to work in teams to create designs for the hoardings based on three themes relating to Hendon; community, environment and the future.

Principal of Barnet and Southgate College David Byrne said: “It’s been fantastic to finally unveil the artwork that our students have worked so hard on in recent months.

“Our students are very proud of the local area and I think this really shows in the artwork they’ve created.”

The students were inspired by various features of the area, including the Welsh Harp Reservoir, the Mill Hill Observatory and the Metropolitan Police Training Centre.
