Heartbeat of St Neots

Huntingdonshire District Council has various refurbishment and improvement projects in St Neots, including revamping the town’s large Market Square, implementing highway improvements along the High Street and refurbishing the Priory Centre, a key venue in our town centre.

Part of this development for the town includes a community public art project, with an agreement in place between Huntingdonshire District Council and St Neots Town Council to deliver the project.

Neotists were commissioned in January 2024 by these authorities to deliver the public art project.

We are at the early stages and have actively engaged with local communities in the development of a permanent art installation that will provide a visually compelling contribution to the local area. 

We have called the project Heartbeat of St Neots which we feel reflects the location and values that we think are important to the people of St Neots.

The project will help create a shared sense of ownership and pride in the works and the public space it will occupy. It also provides opportunities for people to interact creatively with the scheme as it develops.
