We were delighted to lend our support to Roman Way Primary School in Andover, Hampshire, by donating 230 fluorescent vests to help keep pupils safe on their walk to school during the dark winter months.
The donation has been made to encourage children and parents to make walking to school part of their daily routine, promoting a healthy lifestyle and minimising car journeys.
Headteacher Sarah Jones says: “We’d like to say a big thank you to Taylor Wimpey for this kind donation of high-visibility vests which will help the children to stay safe on their walk to school.”
Fiona Creed, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey Southern Counties, says: “We are committed to supporting the communities in which we build our high-quality new homes and this donation is an excellent example of the way we can help schools and other local organisations.”
As well as providing the fluorescent vests for pupils, Taylor Wimpey has also pledged to make a contribution towards the signalisation of a pedestrian crossing near the school, to help improve road safety as traffic levels increase.
The funding is being provided as part of a planning agreement for the new homes at The Chariots and the work is to be carried out by Hampshire County Council.
There is a choice of three and four-bedroom homes currently available at The Chariots at Augusta Park in Andover.
