As part of our ongoing commitment to working in partnership with local communities, we have recently donated a large storage container to St Bride’s Primary School in Cambuslang. This unusual donation has created safe and secure storage for the children’s bikes while they are learning in school.
An enthusiastic group of parents, teachers and children have exercised their creative flair to paint and decorate the container to create possibly one of the most vibrant and interesting bicycle storage areas in South Lanarkshire.
Commenting on the support it has received from Taylor Wimpey, Paul Wright, Active Schools Co-ordinator from South Lanarkshire Leisure and Culture said: “We are extremely grateful for the support that we have received from Taylor Wimpey and we can’t thank them enough for their generous donation. We actively encourage as many children as possible to get on their bikes and cycle to school. This initiative has been so successful that the existing bike racks at St Bride’s Primary were simply not big enough to store the bikes the children were riding to school. We also needed a space for some of the sports and recreation equipment, which we are encouraging the children to use during their time in the playground.
“This storage container, which has been beautifully decorated by a team of parents, teachers and children, has created the additional safe storage that we so badly needed. On behalf of everyone at St Bride’s Primary School, I would like to say a huge thank you to the team at Taylor Wimpey.”
Audrey Ross, Sales and Marketing Director said: “We are proud to be able to support St Bride’s Primary School with this most unusual donation, and we know the container is already being put to good use. The work we do is a lot more than just building high-quality homes. Being able to work with local businesses and organisations that surround our developments means a great deal to us, and it’s great to know that we are helping to make a difference to the lives of people in local communities.”
