Staff from the award-winning housebuilder gave up their free time to help the Story in Stone project, which is taking history from the town’s archives and putting it on the walls for all to enjoy.
Together, they worked on two parts of a mosaic designed by artists Oliver Budd, which together make up the map of Potton. The remaining two will be completed by children from Potton Federation School.
Nick Moore, Managing Director of Kier Living Eastern, said: “We are always delighted when we can help the community and this has to be one of the most exciting projects we have been a part of.
“Story in Stone really puts the history of Potton, Sandy and Biggleswade for all to see and it has been really exciting to know we have been a part of that for future generations.
“I can’t wait to see the mosaics Kier Living Eastern staff have been working on installed in pride of place.”
Kier Living Eastern has been hard at work in Potton creating homes for couples, growing families and downsizers at its popular Tall Trees development.
Story in Stone launched in January, as part of a £4 million market town regernation fund by Central Bedfordshire Council and led by Sandy Town Council, and tells the history of Potton, Sandy and Biggleswade.
The mosaics will create a history trail for residents and visitors to follow for generations to come. The project is due to be completed in February next year.
Carolyn Blake, project manager of Story in Stone, said: “It has been a real thrill to see people of all ages and abilities come together for this project and I want to thank Kier Living Eastern for giving up their time so generously.
“They have made a fantastic contribution and I am as eager to see the finished result as they are.”
Kier Living Eastern’s mosaic is expected to be installed in February 2018 on the side of Potton Library.
