Young­sters get tips on stay­ing safe in summer

Macclesfield Express - - SCHOOLS NEWS -

SCHOOL­CHILD­REN in Poyn­ton have been learn­ing how to play safely this summer with the help of a visi­tor from Redrow Homes.

Redrow staff and Buster Bear, one of the house­builder’s health and safety mas­cots, visited Lo­s­tock Hall Pri­mary School on Mal­lard Cres­cent to help the chil­dren learn about stay­ing safe near con­struc­tion sites.

The chil­dren met Buster in the morn­ing as­sem­bly and were given a talk by Redrow’s group trainee health and safety man­ager, Laura Cat­ter­all, who visited along with as­sis­tant site man­ager Liam Sargeant and sales con­sul­tant Rob Mc­Cann, from the house­builder’s nearby Wood­ford Gar­den Vil­lage development.

Laura said: “The chil­dren were all keen to learn about health and safety and how to stay safe.

“It’s an im­por­tant mes­sage all year round but with the summer hol­i­days here and chil­dren play­ing out­side more it’s a good time to get them think­ing about it. As a com­pany we are com­mit­ted to sup­port­ing the com­mu­ni­ties in which we build, so, with our Wood­ford Gar­den Vil­lage development not far from Lo­s­tock Hall, we were keen to take Buster along. He was a big hit and re­ally helped the chil­dren to en­gage in the mes­sage.”

Year 1 and 2 teacher Jenny My­ers said: “All of the chil­dren thor­oughly en­joyed the fun and in­for­ma­tive as­sem­bly.

“Buster Bear was a big high­light and the chil­dren were all made aware of build­ing site safety.”

Aniela Andrys, aged seven, added: “I loved meet­ing Buster, he ex­plained how to stay safe.”

Adam Fer­ney­hough, also seven, said: “I learnt never to play on build­ing sites, as they are dan­ger­ous.”
