Children from a primary school in Holytown have been given an exciting opportunity to see the new homes that are under construction at our Torrance Gardens development as part of their ‘Houses and Homes’ project in school.
Youngsters from the Primary 3 class from Christ the King Primary School explored our development to learn about the construction of a new home; saw various stages of construction and took the opportunity to visit the two show homes.
Our team in Holytown was more than happy to facilitate the visit as Willie Chassels, Assistant Site Manager at Torrance Gardens adds: “We were more than delighted to be able to welcome the children from Christ the King Primary School for an insight into the build process of a Taylor Wimpey home.
“The children have been learning about new homes and how they are built, so this was a really good opportunity for them to learn about some of the process that it takes to build a new home and see some construction activity at the development. We hope that we have also inspired a few of the youngsters to consider the housebuilding industry in the future. “
Whilst the children were at the development, the team took the opportunity to remind the children 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 are keen to reinforce to the wider local community – especially ahead of the summer school holiday.
Class teacher, Claire Cardle, said: “Our children thoroughly enjoyed their visit to Taylor Wimpey’s Torrance Gardens, asking lots of questions and learning about the building process. They really enjoyed seeing the different stages that it takes to build a new house in real-life, and we know they absolutely loved the show homes.”
