Pupils from a primary school in West Lothian have been given an exciting opportunity to see the new homes that are under construction at our Seton Park development in Winchburgh, as part of their ‘Houses and Homes’ project.
Youngsters from Years 2 and 3 at Holy Family Primary School asked if they could explore our development 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 at the development.
Our team in Winchburgh 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 Nigel Reid, Site Manager, says: “I was delighted to welcome the pupils from Holy Family Primary School along to the development for an exciting insight into the build process of our new homes.
“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.
“While the children were there 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 Abby McKechnie adds: “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 the different stages involved in building a new house in real-life, and we know they absolutely loved the showhomes – in fact the owl bedroom in the ‘Monro’ house was a particular favourite of the whole class!”
Seton Park currently offers a choice of two, three and four-bedroom houses.
