WEB Winchburgh Primary School P2_1 visit to Seton Park - 070217

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 the Primary 2/1 class from Winchburgh 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.

The team in Winchburgh was more than happy to facilitate the visit as Nigel Reid, Site Manager at Seton Park, says: “I was delighted to be able to welcome the pupils from Winchburgh 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. 

“While 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 – especially ahead of school holiday breaks like Easter and summer.”

Class teacher Hannah Manson, 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 the different stages that it takes to build a new house in real life and we know they absolutely loved the showhomes.” 

Seton Park currently features a selection of two, three and four-bedroom houses.
