Taylor Wimpey gives a lesson in safety to local school

Date: Thursday 16 February 2012

Last week Taylor Wimpey East Scotland gave the local school children of St Mungo’s Primary School in Alloa some reminders about health and safety.

As production at the company’s latest development Ochil Gardens in Alloa gets into full swing, Taylor Wimpey is keen to promote the dangers associated with playing near any construction site, and raise awareness of the children’s need to be extra vigilant as work progresses on the site at Ochil Gardens in the town.

This type of activity and involvement with local schools has proven an effective deterrent in the past as Ewan Robertson, Production Director of Taylor Wimpey East Scotland explains: “Health and safety in and around our construction areas is of vital importance to Taylor Wimpey, and 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.

“Our lesson plan delivered by our Health & Safety consultants allows us to deliver a very important message in a fun and interactive way. Having the chance to chat to the children in school serves as the perfect reminder for the children that building sites are not playgrounds!”

Loretta Balmer is Acting Headteacher of St Mungo’s Primary School: “I’m delighted to welcome Taylor Wimpey into our school to highlight the dangers associated with children playing near any construction site. Given the development of new homes is now underway in earnest, we will have a significant amount of construction work in the local area for some time.”

“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.”

Offering 49 new homes with a choice three bedroom semi detached as well as three and four bedroom detached styles to choose from, Ochil Gardens, on the outskirts of Alloa will boast an impressive range of new homes for buyers looking to make their next property move.
