Children given a tour around local Persimmon development

05 October 2016

Children at a school in Stewartby have been given a behind-the-scenes look at a major construction site on their doorstep.

Around 45 pupils at Broadmead Lower School donned hard hats for a look around Persimmon Homes East MidlandsHansons Reach site off Broadmead Road.

The visit on Wednesday, September 28th was part of the pupils' science lessons, where they are learning about construction and building materials.

Sandie Shenton, sales adviser at Hansons Reach, said: "It was great to welcome the children of Broadmead Lower School to our development site.

We were able to tell them a little about how we build our houses and the materials that are used. I'm sure that they went away with a better understanding of construction. It's always much easier to understand something when you've seen it first-hand.

As a company, Persimmon is committed to working alongside the communities in which we are active. This was a great way to do that."

Kim Hewlett, headteacher at the school, said: "The children really enjoyed visiting the building site and seeing how houses are built.

It's been a great way to get the children thinking about the house building industry. Who knows, maybe there are some budding builders amongst them."

Hansons Reach is a much-anticipated new development of three, four and five bedroom homes in a semi-rural location in the Bedfordshire countryside.
