Persimmon's gift to make school pupils safer

31 January 2015

Children at a Norfolk primary school have received lessons in safety thanks to Persimmon Homes.

Persimmon Homes Anglia, which is building in the picturesque village of Lingwood, decided to support local pupils by donating reflective armbands to help educate them on the importance of walking to school safely.

Every pupil at Lingwood Primary School, in Station Road, was presented with a armband as part of a safety education topic. The youngsters are aged from four to eleven years.

Andrew Fuller, managing director for Persimmon Anglia, said: “When we build any new development we want it to become a real part of the community, so it seemed only right that we support local pupils in this way.  We hope that the reflective bands will drive home the safety message.”

Karen Lea, interim headteacher at Lingwood Primary and Nursery School, said: “We are very grateful for the support being provided by Persimmon Homes.

“The safety of our pupils is paramount to us and we are always looking at ways of improving their safety. The reflective armbands will help the pupils on dark mornings and afternoons during the winter months, as well as when they are out and about at the weekends. We appreciate the kind donation.”

Clover Chase offers a mix of two-bedroom bungalows and two, three, four and five-bedroom homes in a small development of just 39 properties.

Alison added: “Clover Chase is proving popular with a wide range of buyers from first-time to growing families and downsizers. A lovely community spirit is developing there so it was important for us to work with the local primary school.”
