HOMEBUILDERS ENLIST SANTA’S LITTLE HELPER TO WARN CHILDREN ABOUT ELF N’ SAFETY

As the Christmas holidays approach, leading developers Barratt Homes North Midlands and David Wilson Homes East Midlands have enlisted one of Santa’s little helpers to send out an important message encouraging children to think about elf n’ safety.

Busy Barratt and David Wilson Homes staff are working on new developments across Leicestershire, many of which have families with children living nearby. With schools closed over Christmas, children are being told to stay away from building sites as they can be bad for their health.

Santa has sent one of his elves to visit Barratt and David Wilson Homes’ sites in Leicestershire, and like every visitor has had to wear a hard hat and hi-vis clothing for protection. The elf is to remind children to stay on Santa’s ‘nice list’ by keeping clear of building sites at all times.

Chris Southgate, Managing Director at Barratt Homes North Midlands, said: “Children can be curious and adventurous, and turn up at the most unlikely places, especially when schools are closed. However, building sites can be dangerous places for young people.”

John Reddington, Managing Director at David Wilson Homes East Midlands, said: “Developers like ourselves are building more new homes at sites all over the country, but until they are completed these places are very hazardous, and with the holidays approaching, children should think of their ‘elf n’ safety and stay well away from them.”

Barratt and David Wilson Homes host site visits and hold regular safety talks for schools close to wherever it is building new homes all year round, to encourage site safety and highlight the hazards of playing on or near construction sites.
