School children discover benefits of sustainability with Taylor Wimpey
Aspull Church Primary School has received a donation from homebuilder Taylor Wimpey Manchester towards its outdoor learning area.
The homebuilder has provided a cash boost of £400 to the school, which is located nearby to its new Bakers Field development, to purchase three new raised vegetable beds which will be used to educate the pupils about the benefits of eating growing and vegetables.
Jenny Clarke, headteacher at Aspull Church Primary School, comments: “The donation has allowed us to develop our outdoor learning experience and will really help us to encourage our pupils to find out the benefits of eating more vegetables. I’m confident the children will be delighted with the new additions, with each year group having time to spend planting their own vegetables.
“The generous donation will help the pupils to learn more about growing their own vegetables, the benefits of living in a sustainable environment and the value of spending more time outdoors.
“We are incredibly grateful to Taylor Wimpey for the support and know the children will love working with the vegetable beds.”
Taylor Wimpey Manchester is excited to partner with more local organisations in anticipation of its new Bakers Field development, which launches later this year.
akers Field, due to launch later this year, is just a short distance from the school in Wigan and is conveniently located for access to the town as well as nearby Westborough and Standish. The development will feature a range of three- and four-bedroom homes, ideal for both first-time buyers and growing families.
Chloe Dunn, sales and marketing director at Taylor Wimpey Manchester, comments: “Discovering the benefits of home grown vegetables is not only educational, it’s also a lot of fun and helps encourage creativity. When Aspull Church Primary School told us about the project, we were inspired and jumped at the chance to help.
