Local primary school children visit Herefordshire housing development

06/03/2012

Saxonby Leintwardine Primary School 1

Specialist affordable housing developer Saxonby recently hosted a visit by local primary school children to its development in Leintwardine on the Herefordshire, Shropshire border.

The 46 key stage one pupils from Leintwardine Endowed CofE Endowed Primary School were introduced to the basics of house construction by Saxonby directors Tim Charnley and Andrew Copson and Sharon Rivers, development manager at Festival Housing Group, which commissioned Saxonby to carry out the build. As part of its corporate social responsibility Saxonby has actively supported initiatives to promote sustainability in the village community during the development, which included a donation of £12,500 to the parish council in 2011.

Tim Charnley explains: “Even though this is in our remit relating to the Leintwardine site, Saxonby is proactive in its support for the communities in which our developments have an impact. The primary school visit was enjoyable. The children asked some intelligent questions and were very interested in finding out how houses were built, even down to the intricate details of where the electricity came from!”

The children recently completed a project about houses and construction and this visit is one of a few they have undertaken. Headteacher at Leintwardine CofE Endowed Primary School, Anne Brandrick, said: “It was a wonderful opportunity for the children to look around the building site and see how houses are built. We were made very welcome!"
