Redrow South Midlands makes donation to local school
Our South Midlands division, currently building at Leestone Park, on Heath Road, presented Heathwood Lower School with a £1,000 donation.
The funds helped the school, which teaches children from pre-school through to year four, purchase and install an outdoor climbing wall, forming part of their plan to promote physical activity with its pupils.
Mr Paul Dicker, Assistant Headteacher at Heathwood School, said: “It’s so important to engage children in physical activity from a young age and one of the key ways we aim to establish this with our pupils is by encouraging exercise through fun, outdoor play.
“We were delighted to receive a funding boost to help us purchase and install a climbing wall in our playground, the children absolutely love it and it’s such a joy to see the equipment already getting so much use. On behalf of everyone at the school, I’d like to say a big thank you to the Redrow South Midlands team for their support.”
Suzanne Irons, sales director for our South Midlands division, said: “As part of our commitment to create thriving communities, we were delighted to be able to support Heathwood Lower School’s initiative, which will encourage children to play outdoors and give them the opportunity to develop their fitness skills.
“In light of the recent government guidelines, creating healthy habits from a young age and giving children the opportunity to develop their fitness skills is more important than ever. We’re proud to play a part in the futures of pupils at Heathwood Lower School by encouraging them to have fun while keeping fit.”
Leestone Park offers the ideal balance of rural living with great connections to surrounding towns. The centre of Leighton Buzzard is just a mile and a half away from the development, and the handy train station means you can travel to Milton Keynes in less than fifteen minutes. In due course, there are also plans for a local centre to be built on the development, as well as an orchard and plenty of open spaces – making the location perfect for families.
