Our team in Manchester recently visited Hurst Knoll St James’ CE Primary School in Ashton-Under-Lyne to deliver a talk on health and safety for pupils.

Dave Appleby, Health and Safety Advisor at Taylor Wimpey Manchester, covered a number of key topics such as the importance of staying away from building sites and health and safety within the home.

Lisa Smith, inclusion leader at the school, explains: “It is imperative for us to educate our pupils on serious issues such as health and safety from a young age – as this could prove potentially lifesaving.

“It was great to welcome Dave and the team along to offer advice in such a fun and interactive manner, as we’re now extremely confident that the children understand the importance of serious issues such as staying away from building sites.

“The children thoroughly enjoyed the activity, so we’re incredibly grateful for Taylor Wimpey’s support on this.”

Chloe Dunn, Sales and Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey Manchester, comments: “It was great to work with Hurst Knoll on this important initiative and to educate children from the community on a potentially lifesaving area.

“The team did a great job in delivering the activity, and we hope the information will prove useful for both the teachers and pupils.”

Hurst Knoll St James’ CE Primary School is based just a short distance from our Stamford Gate development which currently offers a range of three and four-bedroom houses.
