Art-loving pupils at St Augustine's Catholic Primary School in High Wycombe have been drawing up plans to keep building sites safe this summer with George Wimpey.

  • Creative kids have put pen to paper to design posters to highlight health and safety in a competition organised by the house builder, which is currently building homes at its exciting ConteXt development in Castle Street, High Wycombe.

    The children were asked to design posters based on highlighting the dangers of playing on building sites. The most eye-catching and informative posters earnt three young artists - Hayley Inglot, Grace Anneliese David and Samantha Martin - £20 of WH Smith vouchers each.

    Tim Betts, sales & marketing director for George Wimpey (now called Taylor Wimpey, following its merger with Taylor Woodrow) in west London, said: "Faced with a long school holiday, children are often tempted to explore and can sometimes view building sites as an interesting new place to play.

    "We gave the pupils leaflets which reminded them of the dangers of playing on or around building sites, where there are potential dangers like large vehicles, scaffolding, bricks and pipes and sand that can hide sharp metal and glass.

    "By encouraging the children to design posters they are able to understand the safety message better, through the use of graphics."

    The company's ConteXt development of one, two and three bedroom apartments is less than a mile from St Augustine's Catholic Primary School.

    Mr Staggs from the school, said: "The project gave our pupils the opportunity to learn about a serious issue in a fun and informative way and we enjoyed being part of George Wimpey's health and safety initiative."

    Situated in Castle Street, High Wycombe, ConteXt provides the perfect opportunity to enjoy the wide range of shops, bars and restaurants of the recently regenerated town centre.

    Selected apartments offer stunning views across Wycombe Abbey and all are within a five minute walk of the town centre and benefit from central heating, double glazing and fully fitted kitchen with built-in oven, hob and hood, allocated undercroft parking and a balcony or a terrace.

    For relaxation, Rye Park offers green space and an outdoor pool while the town is also home to a theatre, multi-screen cinema and bowling alley.
