Taylor Wimpey gives a lesson in safety to local school

Date: Thursday 24 November 2011

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

As production at the company’s latest development Redmond Brae in Kelty 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 Redmond Brae in the village.

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!”

Michael Glancy is Headteacher of St Joseph’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.”

Set in open countryside with magnificent views, Kelty in Fife is now home to Redmond Brae – a development of 49 new homes with a choice of two and three bedroom terraced, three bedroom semi detached, as well as three and four bedroom family homes. Prices start from £138,000 for the two bedroom Balfour. For more information visit www.taylorwimpey.co.uk/redmondbrae
