Invitations went out last week for a celebration of “Vert”, the KX green sculpture. Was your name on the list?
King’s Cross Community Projects, a charitable trust set up to manage the project, raised many thousands of pounds in cash and in-kind donations from businesses including EC Harris, Conisbee Structural Engineers, Clarke Associates Landscape Design and BAM Construction to install this innovative way of greening an ugly, unloved corner of King’s Cross.
The celebration is the trust’s way of saying thankyou to all who donated money, time, materials and expertise as well as everyone who took part in their extensive consultation when developing the project. They are also keen to invite local people along. The early evening event will comprise an exhibition with previously unseen photos, torchlit unveiling of the acknowledgement plaque by the artist and of course drinks and finger food and will take place on 31 October. Cllr Paul Convery will be guest speaker.
Get your name on the invitation list by emailing King’s Cross Community Projects. Places are limited so get in quick!
