Homes’ Safety Health and Environmental Manager, Steve Garrington, talked to the
children this week around the importance of staying safe near construction
sites ahead of the summer holidays. Alongside the interactive lesson, pupils
were invited to design a poster about the dangers that can be found on
construction sites and the winner will see their poster displayed at the site,
alongside winning a new Amazon Kindle Fire tablet.
Lee, Headteacher for Glebelands Primary School said: “The
visit from Tilia Homes carried a timely and important message for the children
as we approach the holidays and was a great way to end a fantastic term. The pupils
really engaged with the talk and are looking forward to designing their own
posters over the summer holidays. With the new development beginning to take
shape, it’s important we remind our pupils about the dangers of playing near
live construction sites and we’re delighted that Tilia Homes were able to
provide this for us.”
Steve Garrington, SHE Manager for Tilia Homes commented: “The
health and safety of the local communities in which we build is of paramount
importance to Tilia Homes and it was great to be able to talk to the pupils and
deliver a really important message around safety on building sites. The
children were bright and enthusiastic and I’m sure we’ll be receiving some
creative responses to our site safety poster challenge!”
Tilia Homes is
creating a brand new community of 307 private
and 92 affordable homes set amongst the thriving new Ashton Green neighbourhood.
Construction work is now underway with the first homes set to be released for
sale in November.
