Nottinghamshire home-builder gives Fernwood pupils a high visibility way to keep safe
Pupils have received a donation of high-vis vests from a home-builder to mark Walk To School Month.
Children at Chuter Ede Primary School, Fernwood, were given 35 vests from David Wilson Homes to help them walk to school safely.
Head Rachel Revill said: “We were thrilled to accept the donation of high-vis vests from David Wilson Homes and our pupils will look forward to using them throughout October and in the future.
“We’re pleased that these vests will keep our pupils safe and will also encourage them to walk to school.”
The school is close to David Wilson Homes’ Fernwood Village development on Phoenix Lane. The donation is part of the company’s outreach to the community.
Rachael Harrison, sales director at David Wilson Homes East Midlands, said: “We want to ensure pupils remain visible now the darker nights are here, and our donation has hopefully still encouraged them to safely practice Walk To School Month.
“This is a campaign we actively support each year as we endeavour to help local school children in their efforts to commute on foot, and the vests have proven to be both effective and practical.
“As a result of the covid-19 crisis, it’s even more important for us to support schools in and around the communities we build, so we’re thrilled to have had the chance to support Chuter Ede Primary School during Walk To School Month.”
