St. Modwen Homes


Ahead of the summer holidays, award-winning housebuilder, St. Modwen Homes, gave the pupils of Nutgrove Methodist Aided Primary School in St. Helens a lesson in site safety with an assembly that highlighted the dangers of live construction sites.

Led by St. Modwen Homes’ Contracts Manager, Nick Thawley, and the Considerate Constructors’ mascot ‘Ivor Goodsite’, the assembly covered the various hazards that can be found on site including large machinery and falling objects. It also gave pupils an introduction to Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) whilst discouraging them from venturing onto or playing on site.

Mr Rimmer, Headteacher at Nutgrove Methodist Aided Primary School, said: “Many of our pupils live on or near new housing developments, some of which are still partly under construction, so it was a really useful exercise for us to have St. Modwen Homes come in and teach the children about the associated dangers, particularly ahead of the summer holidays.”

Following the assembly, pupils were invited to take part in a poster competition, where they were tasked with highlighting the key safety messages covered in the assembly. Winners, as judged by St. Modwen Homes, will be displayed on the hoardings around Radley Park, to promote site safety to residents and passers-by.

Nick Thawley, Contracts Manager at St. Modwen Homes, said: “A building site might seem like a great place to explore but in reality they can be extremely dangerous, especially for children looking for somewhere to play. This is why it is so important for St. Modwen Homes to work with local schools and the community to keep people safe.”

Currently there is a range of three and four bedroom homes available at Radley Park with prices starting from £159,995 for a three bedroom semi-detached Lawrence design.
