Pupils are brickies for a day at Horndean new homes

Building buddies: youngsters celebrate constructing their wall with site manager Trevor Woolford

Building buddies: youngsters celebrate constructing their wall with site manager Trevor Woolford

Pupils from Horndean Junior School swapped the classroom for the building site when they visited our new collection of homes at the Old Brewery in the village.

Youngsters donned hard hats and high vis vests for a tour of the site off London Road. They were given a safety talk and got the chance to try their hand at laying bricks and building their own test wall.

In the run-up to the summer holidays now is an important time to stress to children that building sites are not playgrounds.

Our Southern region’s redevelopment of the former Gale and Co brewery has preserved the Victorian-built red brick tower that has been a landmark of the village for 150 years. The company has since relocated to Chiswick.

Kate Utting, headteacher at Horndean Junior School, said: “We want to thank Linden Homes for hosting the children down at The Old Brewery site, the event was a huge success.”

Linden Homes Southern sales and marketing director Mark Docherty said: “We were delighted to welcome the youngsters from Horndean Junior School. It was a great chance to teach them crucial safety lessons but also to open their eyes to careers in building.”

Our insulation process includes blowing insulation into cavity walls, which means our homes are better insulated because there are less air gaps.

Over £133m has been committed by Linden Homes to improving local communities since 2010.
