A series of mosaic panels paying tribute to Palmers Green have been placed at Palmers Green Station.

Platform one of Palmers Green Station now has four mosaic panels illustrating the local green spaces, rivers and natural wonders.

Funded by Govia Thameslink Railway, and commissioned by Palmers Green Action Team, the project was put on pause due to the pandemic.

But once restrictions eased over last summer, designers Alex McHallam and Tamara Froud contacted Broomfield School and collaborated with students to create the panel including a beehive – which appears on the school emblem.

One panel also references the pandemic as it includes a discarded face mask.

Alex McHallam said: was thrilled to be asked to create site-specific work in an area I know so well. Once I had seen the arches on the platform I knew I wanted to fill them with art. They are so inviting, as they suggest windows or doors into another view.”

Jenny Saunders, customer services director for Thameslink and Great Northern, said: ‘We owe a huge “thank-you” to Alex and Tamara for conceiving and creating this fabulous set of mosaics for Palmers Green, and to our partners PGAT for commissioning such talented local artists.

“We’re funding over 1,000 projects across our network to give our customers a better experience at their stations. By working with local partners as we’re doing here, we can also make sure stations are the best possible assets for the communities they serve."
