Pupils at Springbank Primary School in Eastwood learned about the importance of construction site safety at a development off Church Lane.

The children were taken to the Rippon Homes Peacock Gardens development on Peacock Drive and learnt about the dangers of playing on building sites and the importance of wearing safety clothing while working in construction.

Claire Fletcher, event manager at Springbank Primary School said: “The children had a great time at Peacock Gardens. They loved getting to try on the hard hats and hi visibility jackets and it was fantastic for them to be able to see the homes in that stage of development – an opportunity they might not normally have.

“At that age, some of the children are beginning to get an idea of what they would like to do when they grow up and so it was also a great opportunity to show them the building industry. We hope our visit inspired a few future builders!”

Julia Varney, sales negotiator from Rippon Homes said: “We were pleased to welcome pupils from Springbank Primary School. They learnt all the dos and don’ts of being on a building site.

“We hope everyone enjoyed the trip and spread the word back at school about site safety.”

Peacock Gardens is a family-focused development of three and four stylish bedroom homes in a great location for those wanting the best of both worlds, from the quiet and attractive setting, to having all the conveniences of Nottingham city centre a short distance away.

The last three bedroom home remaining at Peacock Gardens is available from just £135,000 and encompasses a spacious lounge, fitted kitchen with French doors opening onto the beautiful rear garden.
