Youngsters from Boyne Hill Infant School in Berkshire donned hard hats and safety jackets to see first-hand how homes rise from the ground.
The 61 pupils were given a guided tour of our Chiltern region’s Boyn Hill Gardens development to witness stages of the ground being cleared, foundations being laid, and the first bricks stack up.
Linden Homes site managers Robert Rodney and Jim McGrath also explained some of the safety measures and the children were challenged to draw what they had seen.
We’ve helped out the school before by donating £500 towards its plans to revamp the playground, including a new shelter, all-weather grass and new bedding plants.
Mr Phillips, the children’s teacher, said “We want to thank Linden Homes for hosting the children at Boyn Hill Gardens site, the event was a huge success.
“The children really enjoyed their visit and were interested to see the work going on at the development. They loved the pencil sharpeners giveaway and also the high visibility jackets which I’m sure they will enjoy wearing on their journeys to school.”
Robert Rodney added: “We were delighted to welcome the youngsters from Boyne Hill Infant School. It was a great chance to talk though the crucial safety lessons which is particularly important to teach at a young age.”
