Housebuilder’s donation makes walk to school safer

A housebuilder in Farnsfield has donated 100 high-visibility jackets to help keep schoolchildren safe.

Bellway – which is building new homes at Bellway at Farnsfield on Southwell Road – has provided the jackets to pupils at St Michael’s CofE Primary School.

The fluorescent jackets will be worn by pupils to make them more visible to motorists when walking to and from the library.

Bellway East Midlands Sales Director, Carolyne Watkinson said:

“As a housebuilder, we are committed to supporting the communities in which we build, so we are proud to be teaming up with St Michael’s School to provide 100 high-visibility jackets to the pupils.

“We are looking forward to seeing the pupils, some of whom live at our Bellway at Farnsfield development, looking bright in their jackets, and we hope our donation will enable the children to be clearly seen on their travels."

Headteacher of St Michael’s CofE Primary School, Tony Walker, said:

“The safety of our pupils is at the heart of all that we do within school.

“The donation of the jackets will allow pupils to be safe and seen as they cross the roads within the village.”

Bellway has also donated a set of high-visibility jackets to primary school pupils in Newark at Halam CofE Primary School.

There are now just five four-bedroom homes available to buy at Bellway at Farnsfield. For more information, visit
