Ocean were looking for a unique way to mark the big occasion – to celebrate the completion of their 1,000th new home in Cornwall for local families – so we invited the school children of Connor Downs Academy to rise to the challenge.
The unique idea chosen was to turn the 1,000th home into a house decorated with pictures of local scenes or people painted by Connor Downs’ children along with prints of some of the world’s best known pictures, including The Mona Lisa.
As part of the official opening, by Ocean’s Group Chairman, Dennis Spilsbury, guests entered the 1,000th home and were greeted by a wonderful sea of art from the local children within the one off ‘Art House’.
Ocean’s Chief Executive David Renwick commented,
“The 1,000th home is an important milestone for the company but it is more important for the local families who will have first class homes to live in.
We have a strong relationship with the school and local community, and the young children seeing their paintings on display will hopefully be fun and exciting for them”.
