We give Primary School pupils lesson at our Hopefield Gait development in Bonnyrigg
Burnbrae pupils on our Hopefield Gait development
Pupils from Burnbrae Primary have been given an exciting opportunity to see the new homes that are under construction at their neighbouring Hopefield Gait development of new homes in Bonnyrigg as part of their ‘Houses and Homes’ project in school.
Youngsters from the Primary two class asked if they could explore the development that overlooks the school to learn all about how a house is built, look at various stages of construction and take the opportunity to visit the two completed showhomes.
The team at Taylor Wimpey in Bonnyrigg was more than happy to facilitate the visit and found the children to be very enthusiastic with lots of interesting and well-informed questions as Ronnie King, Site Manager at Hopefield Gait adds: “I was delighted to be able to welcome the pupils from Burnbrae Primary School along to the development for an exciting insight into the build process of a Taylor Wimpey home.
“I was very impressed by how much the children already knew about building a new home, and the number of questions they asked shows me they’re clearly interested in this topic. In fact I hope we’ve inspired a few of the youngsters to consider the housebuilding industry in the future.
“Whilst the children were on-site, I took the opportunity to remind them never to play near a building site and that a school visit was extra-special because normally there are no children allowed near any construction. Never playing near a construction site is a message that we’re keen to reinforce to the wider local community.”
Class teacher Moira Nelson, says: “Our pupils thoroughly enjoyed their visit to Taylor Wimpey’s construction site, asking lots of questions and learning about the building process. They really enjoyed seeing some of the different stages that it takes to build a new house in real-life, and we know they absolutely loved the showhomes!”
We extend our support for new football strips for Burnbrae Primary School
Burnbrae Primary team members in their new strips
We have extended our support once again for local school football in Hopefield Gait, Bonnyrigg by renewing the football strips for neighbouring school Burnbrae Primary.
School team coach and teacher Jamie Dougal said: “We’re thrilled to have received this support from Taylor Wimpey once again. They supplied a full set of football kits a couple of years ago and over the years they’ve become old and worn, so we’re delighted that Taylor Wimpey has supplied has with a completely fresh set of kit.
“This cements the ongoing relationship that Burnbrae Primary has enjoyed with them since the school was built a few years ago, and their regular support for the football team is gratefully received. Our team is now the proud owners of new strips, and we’re delighted to see them looking so smart as they approach every game to represent our school.”
Commenting on the sponsorship, Karen Armstrong, Sales and Marketing Director said: “We’re delighted to be supporting Burnbrae Primary in this way, and we hope that our continued involvement will bring the team lots of luck in future matches.
“This sponsorship allows us to further establish our links with the local community in Bonnyrigg, underpinning our commitment to create a fantastic range of family homes at our Hopefield Gait development.”
