Redrow gives children the tools to stay safe

CHILDREN at Thundersley Primary School learnt the importance of staying safe when playing near building sites with help from Redrow.

The award-winning homebuilder is constructing new homes at Oaklands Park in Thundersley, less than two miles from the school.

Redrow’s group health and safety manager Steve Sayers visited the school to give the children a lesson on health and safety.

As good neighbours Redrow also wanted to ensure the children stay safe during trips out and so had the bright idea of donating high-vis vests to the school, which Steve delivered when he visited.

Steve said:

“A construction site might look like a fun place to play, but there are lots of hazards that can make it dangerous, particularly for children. With the lighter evenings and warmer weather meaning children are more likely to play outside we wanted to ensure that they are equipped with the tools they need to stay safe.”

During the visit children were able to watch a short film and try on protective clothing and equipment.

Steve Mackay, deputy head teacher at Thundersley Primary School, said:

“The children are watching with interest as the new homes take shape nearby and so it was great for them to hear from Redrow about the importance of staying safe near construction sites. We really appreciate the high-vis vests Redrow have donated to the school – the children will make good use of them during school trips.”

Combining traditional exteriors with bright, modern interiors, it’s safe to say the new Redrow homes at Oaklands Park are in a class of their own.
