Redrow's Bright Idea To Keep Children Safe

Children from a Hamilton school are glowing with pride and wearing new high visibility vests from Redrow.

The housebuilder stepped up to donate 450 high-vis vests to Kestrels’ Field Primary School to help keep children living near its Hamilton Gardens and Hamilton Park developments safe.

They can be worn by pupils on their way to and from school or whilst out and about as part of their lessons.

And it’s safe to say that children in key stage two (seven to 11-year-olds) learnt an important lesson when Redrow’s mascots Buster and Buddy visited the school, accompanied by health and safety manager David Bunyard.

David said: “A construction site might look like a fun place to play, but there are lots of hazards that make it dangerous, particularly for children. With the summer holidays fast approaching and construction of our new homes in Hamilton progressing we wanted to ensure children from Kestrels’ Field are equipped with the knowledge they need to stay safe.”

Head teacher Jo Higgins commented: “The children have been watching with interest as the homes begin to take shape and so were keen to find out more about the work. We’re grateful to Redrow for taking the time to come into school and give the children such an important lesson in a fun and engaging way. They really enjoyed meeting Buster and Buddy.

“The donation of 450 high-vis vests was really generous and will help improve children’s safety when they’re out and about near school by ensuring they can be seen by road users.”

Between them, Hamilton Gardens and Hamilton Park offer a good choice of three, four and five-bedroom homes from Redrow’s sought after Heritage Collection.

Four showhomes at Hamilton Gardens are open for viewing daily. For more information call 0116 2760575 or see
