Northamptonshire Youngsters Get An Insight Into The House Building Industry
13 Nov 2012

CHILDREN from Greens Norton C of E Primary School have been treated to an extra curricular lesson – with house building appearing on the timetable!

A group of youngsters and teachers received a special invitation from Linden Homes to see just what goes into building a new housing development.

And where better to get an insight than at the nearby Roman View development in the village.

The budding builders and architects were treated to a demonstration of construction machinery at work, before taking part in a house building and health and safety quiz.

The seven to nine year olds also had a chance to find out what goes into building a home by chatting to site manager Glenn Smyth.

The children have now been tasked with designing a safety poster, which will be displayed in the Linden Homes sales and marketing suite at the development.

An intimate development on the edge of Northamptonshire, Roman View will comprise a range of one, two, thee and four-bedroom homes set in a private cul-de-sac location.

Perfectly positioned just two miles to the north west of Towcester, many of the homes will enjoy panoramic rural views across open countryside.

The sales and marketing suite and show home are open from Thursday to Monday from 10.30am - 5pm. Alternatively, call the sales team on 0844 417 8969.
