North Manchester children play it safe with help from Redrow


CHILDREN at Lily Lane School in Moston built on their safety skills when Redrow’s health and safety mascot paid them a visit.

Buster Bear was joined at the North Manchester school by Redrow’s health and safety manager David Ford.

David explained: “To a child a building site can seem like fun and they could be tempted to play there without realising just how hazardous they are.  We’re building on several sites in the Moston and Harpurhey area, including Kenyon Gardens which is close to Lily Lane School and as good neighbours want to ensure that the children stay safe. With that in mind, with the help of Buster Bear we gave them an important lesson in the health and safety issues surrounding construction sites. Hopefully it’s a lesson that will stay with them for life.”

During the visit, children from years one and two (five to seven-year-olds) were taught about the hazards on a building site. They were also told why it’s vital for staff and visitors to site to wear health and safety equipment and the children were able to try on items such as high visibility jackets and hard hats.

Head teacher Sheila Keegan commented: “We’re grateful to Redrow for giving the children such an important lesson in a fun and constructive way.  The children really enjoyed meeting Buster and trying on the safety gear.”

It’s safe to say that Redrow homes in Moston and Harpurhey have been appealing to homebuyers. Between Kenyon Gardens, Hanson Gardens and Woodville Gardens there’s a good choice of two, three and four-bedroom homes available. Prices start from £120,995 with incentives available to help make them more affordable.
