Working with a local artist

Our Community Artist, Mick Hand, is a professional artist with more than 20 years’ experience.

He delivers workshops with local schools in areas where we have long-running or disruptive pipe replacement projects, with the resulting NGN-themed artwork used on our site fencing, on customer letters, and even on our vehicles.

Mick is also documenting the legacy of our gas holders using sketches and paintings.  These structures will gradually disappear from the region’s skyline over the next ten to fifteen years as a result of our holder demolition program.

We’re also calling for people to share their gas holder memories by emailing or writing to:

Northern Gas Networks
Stakeholder Relations
Thorpe Park Business Park
1100 Century Way
LS15 8TU

Ultimately, we aim to produce a book encompassing this artwork along with reminiscences from local people, to capture the history of these structures for future generations.
