Beeches Crescent opens gates to 60 school children

Brick by brick: pupils from Westlands Primary School learn about construction at Beeches Crescent

Brick by brick: pupils from Westlands Primary School learn about construction at Beeches Crescent

Sixty potential young construction workers of the future came to get a taste of housebuilding at our Eastern region’s Beeches Crescent development in Chelmsford.

Two Year 6 classes from nearby Westlands Primary School donned high visibility vests and hard hats to experience a working building site in action, where a collection of three, four and five-bedroom semi-detached and detached homes are taking shape.

Headteacher Gill Bennison said: “Building sites are fascinating places for everyone – especially young people – so we are very grateful to Linden Homes for allowing the children to see what happens on site.

“With a visit like this, they got to safely see what goes on behind the scenes when new homes are being built. It was great experience for them especially as they even got to have a go at building their own wall!”  

David White, Linden Homes site manager at Beeches Crescent, added: “We were delighted to be able to show the children around. We are right near the school so they may have been aware of the vehicles, deliveries and materials coming in and out of the site.

“They may even know someone who works here. They could well have heard some of the building activity too – so this will give them a chance to see what has been going on over here.”
