We Give Lesson In Safety To Local School Children In Paisley
We recently gave the local children of Williamsburgh Primary School in Paisley, some reminders about health and safety.
As construction of new homes at our local Hawkhead Gardens, off Hawkhead Road in Paisley gets underway, we were keen to promote the dangers associated with playing near any construction site. The visit gave our team 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 Brian Henderson, Production Director for Taylor Wimpey West 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!”
Nova Scott, Head Teacher at Williamsburgh 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 was the ideal opportunity for them to reinforce their safety message ahead of the school Christmas holidays when many of our pupils will be enjoying their time away from the classroom.
“It’s great that Taylor Wimpey understands the importance of our children’s safety, and has created such an interactive and proactive approach to appeal to our pupils.”

We Are Proud To Leave A Lasting Legacy In Paisley
Staff at the ACCORD Hospice in Paisley have received a colourful boost as part of our national Proud campaign, which aims to show our commitment and pride in leaving a lasting legacy in the communities in which we build.
As pre-construction works for our development at Hawkhead in Paisley gather pace, we have delivered eight stunning planters to add a burst of colour to each of the patios of the newly refurbished In-patient unit. Each beautiful planter will also have a further boost in spring when 400 bulbs will add an annual injection of colour.
Alison McPhee, Sales Manager for our new development coming soon at Hawkhead Gardens, off Hawkhead Road, joined the ACCORD team as the planters were delivered, and she was also given the opportunity to visit the new IPU facility. She said: “We are proud that we will soon be returning to Paisley to build a new community at our Hawkhead Gardens development.
“Our Proud spring bulb campaign is being rolled out at schools and community groups across the west of Scotland, and we were thrilled to have this opportunity to extend the project to include these lovely planters for the new patient patios at the ACCORD Hospice. We hope that each one will add a burst of colour to the private outside space that’s been created for patients, their friends and families.”
David McFadden, ACCORD Hospice added: “It’s great to see a company like Taylor Wimpey think about the wider community while they are building in the local area, and leave something beautiful behind that will last for years to come. We are delighted to be involved in this initiative from Taylor Wimpey, and we are looking forward to announcing our further partnership with them in the next few weeks.”
