Taylor Wimpey gives lesson in safety to local school children in Greendykes, Edinburgh
Taylor Wimpey East Scotland recently been back to school, to give the children of Castleview Primary in Edinburgh some reminders about health and safety.
As construction of new homes at Taylor Wimpey East Scotland’s development of new homes at Bankfield Brae, off Greendykes Road is now underway, the homebuilder was keen to promote the dangers associated with playing near any construction site. The visit gave Taylor Wimpey an opportunity to raise awareness of the children’s need to be extra vigilant as the building of its new homes progresses.
Being proactive with local schools has proven an effective deterrent in the past as Tommy Stirling, Production Director for Taylor Wimpey East Scotland explains: “Health and safety in and around our construction areas is of vital importance to Taylor Wimpey. Taking this type of proactive approach with local schools allows us to reinforce just how important it is for children to stay away from building sites, and it gives us the chance to remind the children that building sites are not playgrounds!”
Jenny Burnett, Depute Head Teacher, at Castleview Primary School adds: “I was delighted to welcome the team from Taylor Wimpey into our school to highlight the dangers associated with children playing near any construction site.
“It’s great that Taylor Wimpey understands the importance of our children’s safety and created such an interactive and proactive approach to appeal to our pupils.”
