Builder Bear visits children in Biggar, Lanarkshire

March 2015

Builder Bear dropped into Biggar Primary School to teach the children a health and safety lesson this month.

The children, aged six and seven, from Mrs McQuoney’s class were shown a DVD which depicts the dangers of building sites. The children watched the film in awed silence and  took every message on board.

A surprise visit from Story Homes’ mascot, Builder Bear, delighted the children with his fun and games, as he reinforced the safety message in an informal way. Our Health and Safety Advisor, Sean Trodden spoke to the children about the lessons learnt from the health and safety film. The children had certainly been listening and asked insightful questions and talked eagerly about the dangers to be aware of on a building site.Biggar primary feature

Claire McQuoney said: “The pupils really enjoyed the story homes visit. It had the ‘wow’ factor to begin our new topic of ‘Houses and homes’. The children are now very aware of the dangers of playing on a building site. This is very topical at the moment as we are watching our new school being built.”

Story Homes has a new development, Pentland Reach in the picturesque town of Biggar and is conscientious in keeping local residents as safe as possible. Visits to schools to make children safety aware are an important part of our work in the community.
