Hats off to developers for safety gear donation!
Lawley Village Developer Group (LVDG) has donated 25 mini hard hats and 25 mini high-visibility jackets to Lawley Village Day Nursery.
The youngsters can use the safety gear for role-play and also wear the jackets to keep them safer on walks in the local area.
The donation is part of a wider safety campaign by LVDG - which comprises housebuilders Barratt Homes, Charles Church, David Wilson Homes, Persimmon Homes and Taylor Wimpey - to educate children about the dangers of playing on or near building sites.
Rebecca Fisher, Nursery Manager at Lawley Village Day Nursery, says: "We'd like to thank Lawley Village Developer Group for this generous donation.
"Children love role-playing different jobs and being a builder is often a popular choice, especially because we are located within a brand new development - the children regularly see builders and building equipment. Having this mini safety gear is just perfect to help them play the part!
"It also helps the children think about why builders might need safety equipment which is great for developing their understanding of the world."
Lawley Village Day Nursery is located in Gresham Drive, next to Morrisons and caters for children aged from two months to five years. There is also an after-school club and holiday club for children up to the age of twelve years.
Graydon Worthing, of the LVDG, says: "We're delighted to support Lawley Village Day Nursery, which is playing such an important part in the life of this exciting new community, and hope the children really enjoy playing builders with their new safety gear.
"We're also keen to get the message across to youngsters that building sites are very dangerous places where hey should never be tempted to play."
