David Wilson Homes has announced that they have teamed up with Deighton Gates Primary School in order to take part in a road safety project. David Wilson has been working to build new homes since they were first founded in 1958. The company is now known for being a high quality national house builder. The company was first established as a part of the Barratt property development company and has been expanding ever since.
David Wilson are committed to giving back in the areas that they are operating in. As part of this the property developing company have been working with Deighton Gates Primary School in order to implement a number of road safety measures. The Pupils were asked to design road safety signs to be put up at David Wilson Homes’ new Templars Chase development which is located in the village nearby.
The signs are part of a project to highlight the speed drivers get to on the road and to illustrate the dangers that driving too fast on residential roads leads to. Three winning designs were chosen from the ones that were submitted by the pupils at the school and they will noww be made into signs that will be put up at the entrance of the development, as a measure warning road users in this area to slow down.
As part of this project, the children also took part in classes that educated them about road safety and the awareness required on them. The pupils took part in the competition in pairs and the winners are all eagerly awaiting the completion of the housing development that will then proudly display the children’s road safety signs.
It is great to see the house building company working closely with the local community while carrying out their work, especially working to educate the pupils of Deighton Gates Primary School about road safety awareness during a period when the traffic on the roads in the village and surrounding areas will be increased because of the development.
