As the Christmas holidays approach, leading developer 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 David Wilson Homes staff are working on new developments across Leicestershire, 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 shouldn’t be visited unsupervised.
Santa has sent one of his elves to visit David Wilson Homes’ sites across the county, 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.
John Reddington, Managing Director at David Wilson Homes East Midlands, 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 for young children.
“With the holidays approaching, children should think of their ‘elf n’ safety and stay well away from them.”
Before social distancing restrictions were in place, David Wilson Homes hosted site visits and held regular safety talks and for schools close to its developments all year round, to encourage site safety and highlight the hazards of playing on or near construction sites.
David Wilson Homes is currently building properties at the following developments in the area: Fleckney Fields in Fleckney, DWH @ Kibworth, Wigston Meadows in Wigston, Grange View in Hugglescote and Burnmill Grange in Market Harborough.
