Create Homes supports Pilling St. John’s Primary school
Create Homes Site Manager Jason Dandy and his team of contractors from SML Painters and Decorators Ltd and LUXE Brickwork Limited gave their time and expertise to help Pilling St. John’s during the school holidays. The decorating team painted the school hall, whilst the brick contractors created a new opening in the playground wall for a gateway at the back of the school, allowing easier access to a running track and the ‘Forest School’ area, which provides an opportunity for child-lead learning through exploration and interaction with nature. The work took the two teams four days to complete.
The school children had previously engaged with Create Homes when they presented the Sales Team with a show board welcome new residents to the housing development and advertise their school to new families. Throughout the duration of the building work, Create Homes made sure that children were kept safe when walking to school across the site, by providing a secure fenced pathway.
Pilling St John's CE Primary School & Nursery is a creative, forward-thinking Church of England Primary School, and school hall is utilised for assemblies, sports and extra-curricular activities such as music and arts. Staff believe the upgraded facilities that the Create Homes team provided will help them deliver their high-quality curriculum in a better environment, therefore contributing to the children’s wellbeing and development.
Acting Headteacher, Lisa Hill wrote to Create Homes to thank the team for their hard work: “Please pass on my thanks to the workers who completed the work. They were professional, friendly and very approachable. They explained what they were doing and what they needed clearly to us and put us at ease. They worked with us to ensure that they had access to school and have done a brilliant job in the work they carried out. The children have been very excited to see the hall painted and the hole in the wall has already made a massive difference to access to the field and Forest School area.”
Georgia Bridge, Area Sales Manager at Create Homes commented: “St William’s Gate development in Pilling has proved very popular with buyers and I feel that our connection with the local community can only get stronger as more new families move onto the development. We wish everyone at the school the very best for the future and we are really happy that you like the improvements.”
