Drab hoardings outside a building site for a powerful substation have been brightened up thanks to a new initiative.
All Change, a charity based in Graham Street, Islington, and National Gird have teamed up to give the temporary wall a splash of colour.
The charity worked with local artists and community groups to hold creative workshops, which inspired the final design for the site on Seven Sisters Road, Finsbury Park.
Dave Luetchford, from National Grid said: “It’s important to us to connect on a personal level with the communities where we work.
“That’s why this partnership project with All Change has been so worthwhile and we hope that local residents enjoy viewing the hoarding art for many years to come.”
