As the Christmas holidays approach, leading developer Barratt and David Wilson Homes has 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 Bedfordshire, 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 ‘elf’.
Santa has sent one of his elves to visit Barratt and David Wilson Homes’ sites in Bedfordshire, and like every visitor has had to wear a hard hat and hi-vis clothing for protection. The elf is to remind kids to stay on Santa’s ‘nice list’ by keeping clear of building sites at all times.
Llir Gjini, Construction Director at Barratt and David Wilson Homes North Thames, said; “Children, like elves, can be curious and adventurous, and turn up in the most unlikely places, especially when schools are closed. However, building sites can be dangerous places for little people.
“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 hosts site visits and holds 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.
Barratt and David Wilson Homes North Thames currently has a selection of homes available to buy at high quality developments in Bedfordshire, including the Barratt Homes site Marston Fields in Marston Moretaine and the David Wilson site The Paddocks in Langford.
