Pupils at Moorgate Primary Academy in Tamworth recently received a donation of hi-vis vests from 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 35 high-vis vests from the Staffordshire developer will help the pupils continue to make the journey to school safely.
Jonathan Williams, Headteacher at Moorgate Primary Academy, said: “We’re most grateful to David Wilson Homes for the donation of high-vis vests to help keep our pupils safe.
“We hope to put the vests 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.”
Moorgate Primary Academy is located nearby the homebuilder’s Dunstall Park development and the donation of hi-vis vests is another part of 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.
Rachael Harrison, Sales Director at David Wilson Homes East 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.
“This is a campaign we actively support each year as we endeavour to help local school children in their efforts to commute on foot, and the high-vis vests have proven to be both effective and practical.
“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 Moorgate Primary Academy during Road Safety Week.”
David Wilson Homes’ hi-vis vests will be particularly useful during Road Safety Week, whilst being certain to benefit the pupils in their future journeys to school throughout the winter months.
Dunstall Park currently has a selection of three and four bedroom homes available in with prices starting from £305,995.
