The house builder has launched a regional safety campaign to remind youngsters about the dangers of playing on construction sites.
While areas where building work is going on can look like exciting places for children to play, they also pose serious dangers, says David Wilson Homes.
"Youngsters are often on the lookout for somewhere new to play, but construction sites are not adventure playgrounds," said Anthony Dimmick, the community liaison manager for David Wilson Homes, who has been touring the area with the house builder's mascot Dugg Wilson to talk to children about the dangers.
"Our sites are always secure but if a child did get onto site and get injured it may be some hours before they could be discovered, education to the dangers that exist on construction sites is one of our main aims.
"With the summer holidays approaching it is important to remind children and their parents about the potential dangers of building sites and the need to stay away from them,'' said Dimmick.
"We are also talking to children to teach them about how houses are built which they find fascinating.''
David Wilson Homes has active sites across the region, where Dimmick and Dugg Wilson are regular visitors to local fetes, schools and groups organising not only safety talks but career and informative briefs along with competitions for all ages.
Dimmick has played a key role in community liaison for David Wilson Homes, working with residents to help build stronger communities for the future and he says visiting local community groups is a key part of this role.
And to ensure as many children as possible can learn more about building sites Dimmick and Dugg Wilson are now taking bookings for school visits, summer fetes and weekend events.
