Harron lays foundations for next generation of builders with donation to construction area at Nottinghamshire primary school
A leading housebuilder has made a donation to a primary school in Forest Town to help educate its students on the importance of site safety, and inspire a new generation of construction professionals.
Harron Homes gave £500 to Holly Primary School, which is situated close to Forest Reach, the developer’s luxury collection of four-bedroom homes on the southern edge of the Nottinghamshire village.
The money will be used to develop an outdoor construction area, which will complement teaching on the built environment and the necessity to adhere with health and safety measures at all times.
It will also enable pupils to bring their experiences of practical learning into more theoretical, classroom-based lessons.
In addition to the monetary donation, Harron presented the school with a consignment of safety helmets for pupils to wear while using the new construction area.
Lorret Cook, Sales Executive at Forest Reach, handed over both a cheque and the safety helmets to representatives of the school’s staff, as well as a small group of students, during a special ceremony.
Duncan White, HHeadteacher at Holly Primary School said, “The children were so excited to receive the hard hats. They have really helped bring our new construction area to life. It’s great to work in partnership with local businesses like Harron Homes and we are incredibly grateful for their support.”
Natalie Griffiths, Sales and Marketing Director for Harron Homes North Midlands, said: “We are thrilled to have made this donation to Holly Primary School.
“As a considerate constructor, we recognise our responsibility to help educate younger generations on the importance of site safety.
“We hope that the children have lots of fun using the new construction area safely, and that their experiences in doing so may even inspire them to pursue a career in the industry later in life.”
Forest Reach is located off Newlands Road, Forest Town, Mansfield, NG19 0HX. The showhome and marketing suite are open daily from 10.30am and 5.30pm, while the sales team is contactable on 01623 549001.
