Students at a junior’s school in Sutton have created imaginative commemorative plates to honor the Queen’s 70th anniversary.

In preparation for the Platinum Jubilee, St Nicholas Shopping Centre reached out to Robin Hood Juniors school, asking them to use their artistic skills and help them create a celebratory installation for the centre.

Taking the idea of a classic commemorative plate, the children decorated more than one hundred paper plates, congratulating the Queen, and commemorating her historic anniversary.

The paper plates are now being showcased in the Centre’s new Pop-Up Gallery.

The display is open daily to the public from 11am to 3pm until Sunday June 5, 2022, located on Level one, opposite New Look.

Gavin Waller, Centre Director, invited the children and their teachers to view their display prior to the official opening on Wednesday May 25, and personally thanked them for all their hard work, awarding the children with a voucher to spend on a meal at The Attic, the centre’s unique food offering on Level 3.

Gavin Waller said: “The pupils of Robin Hood Junior School really took this project to heart and created some wonderful pieces of art, enabling us to create a truly unique celebration for the Platinum Jubilee.

“We invite the local community to come in and appreciate the skills of our young artists.”

The new Pop Up Gallery offers free space to the local art community to showcase their work throughout the year.
