Build­ing site safety taught to pri­mary chil­dren

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News -

YOUNG chil­dren learned all about the dan­gers of build­ing sites from the ex­perts.

Larkfleet Homes vis­ited Bourne Abbey Academy to teach the pupils about haz­ards of build­ing sites.

Joe­yard­ley, Larkfleet Group’s health and safety ad­vi­sor, vis­ited the school to speak to dif­fer­ent age groups with in­ter­ac­tive as­sem­blies.

The visit was par­tic­u­larly rel­e­vant be­cause the de­vel­oper has started work on the Abbey­fields de­vel­op­ment which is next to the school in Abbey Road.

Mr­yard­ley said: “At Larkfleet Homes, we feel very strongly about build­ing site safety.

“These as­sem­blies will go some way to en­sure that pupils are aware of the risks of play­ing in and around build­ing sites and this is even more im­por­tant with the sum­mer hol­i­days ap­proach­ing.”

The Abbey­fields de­vel­op­ment is built on the old Co-op site in Man­ning Road with 108 prop­er­ties in­clud­ing 33 af­ford­able homes.

And some homes will in­clude so­lar pho­to­voltaic (PV) pan­els which pro­duce electricity from day­light, gen­er­at­ing use­able power even on cloudy days.
