Nottinghamshire homebuilder helps pupils look on the bright side for road safety week

Pupils at Chuter Ede Primary School in Fernwood recently received a donation of hi-vis kit bags from Barratt and David Wilson Homes to help them shine bright during Road Safety Week.

Road Safety Week runs from November 16th to 22nd and inspires thousands of schools, organisations and communities to take action on road safety and promote life-saving messages during the week and beyond.

The theme for this year’s campaign is ‘No Need to Speed’, focusing on how a reduced speed of traffic leads to safe and healthy journeys, and the donation of 90 high-vis kit bags from the Nottinghamshire developer will help the pupils continue to make the journey to school safely.

Rachel Revill, Head of School at Chuter Ede Primary School’s Fernwood site, said:

“We’re most grateful to Barratt and David Wilson Homes for the donation of high-vis kit bags to help keep our pupils safe.

“We hope to put the kit bags to good use, to encourage more of our pupils to walk to school and to stay safe, particularly now that the darker mornings and nights are here."

Chuter Ede Primary School is located nearby the homebuilders’ Fernwood Village development and the donation of hi-vis kit bags is another part of Barratt and David Wilson Homes’ outreach to the local community.

In what’s been a challenging year for schools across the country as a result of the pandemic, the leading developer is still as committed as ever to providing support during Road Safety Week and beyond.

Jan Ruston, Sales Director at Barratt Homes North Midlands, said:

“We want to ensure the pupils in the local communities remain visible now the darker nights are here, and our donation has hopefully still encouraged them to safely practice Road Safety Week.”

Rachael Harrison, Sales Director at David Wilson Homes East Midlands, said:

“As a result of the Covid-19 crisis, it’s even more important for us to support the local schools in and around the communities we build, so we’re thrilled to have had the chance to support Chuter Ede Primary School during Road Safety Week.”

Barratt and David Wilson Homes’ hi-vis kit bags have been particularly useful during Road Safety Week, whilst being certain to benefit the pupils in their future journeys to school throughout the winter months.
