As part of WRW's commitment to the communities it works within, two tonnes of bark was donated to Talgarth Primary School to make their play area safe.
After being approached by the Head Teacher of Talgarth Primary School, WRW made the goodwill gesture after learning that pupils had not been able to use the children's play area for some time as it was deemed unsafe. WRW welcomed the opportunity to engage with the Primary School who are located adjacent to one of our current residential projects.
The scheme at Talgarth includes the design and construction of 18 dwellings in a mixture of apartments, houses and bungalows.
CSR Coordinator Kelly Edwards attended the school playground this week to lay the bark with assistance from teachers and pupils. The children from the School's Eco Council enjoyed getting involved and were very excited to be able to use the play equipment again.
The scheme has created a lot of interest amongst the Primary School children who expressed that they don't see much construction taking place in the rural area in which they live. As part of our commitment to raising the profile of the construction industry and safety in particular among young people, a re-visit at the School will take place before half term to carry out an Ivor Goodsite Safety Presentation and Construction Ambassador workshop.
