At the site, which boarders Nelstrop Road and Meadows Road, the children were kitted out in hi-vis jackets and hard hats to learn about health and safety, as well as the potential dangers associated with a working construction area. And on the eve of them breaking up for the summer, Lee Pitchford, Adlington’s construction manager, gave the ten children a tour of the site, as well as highlighting the risks.
Paul Collins, assistant head teacher at St Anne's RC High School, said: “This trip has come at the perfect time for the children, with the end of term just around the corner. The children will be venturing out with friends and so it is essential they understand the potential risks associated with straying on to a construction site, which can so often look like an attractive play area.”
Lee said: “Allowing the children to see what a building site looks like and letting them view the machinery, will help them understand the risks. As a developer, forging links with the local community is very important and we were pleased to have been able to involve a local school.”
The new development will feature one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments and is perfectly located, with shops, amenities and transport within easy walking distance.
In addition to the luxury-private accommodation and care packages designed to meet individual needs, homeowners will enjoy an on-site dining room, communal lounges, activity room, hair salon, guest suite and landscaped gardens.
