Children learn the art of staying safe near building sites
9:00am Saturday 23rd July 2011 in News
YOUNGSTERS in Altrincham are in the picture when it comes to staying safe - having designed their own posters warning of the dangers of playing near construction sites.
The children from Broadheath Primary School were invited to draw safety signs following a visit from Redrow’s health and safety mascot Buster Bear.
Those who created the best posters were presented with their prizes when Buster, along with the company’s health and safety manager, David Ford, and Jeff Dickinson, site manager of Stamford Brook in Altrincham, returned to the school.
David explained: “Because Broadheath School is so close to our site at Stamford Brook it’s important that the children are aware of the potential hazards.”
Budding artists Connor Erskine, eight, Lili Nyeste, 10, Jessica Beattie, six, Olivia Fielding, five, and Kaitlyn Horrocks, six, were presented with gift vouchers as their prizes.
Redrow will display the children’s artwork on site at Stamford Brook.
