Schoolkids make health and safety posters for Longniddry Village development
Children at Longniddry Primary School have used their artistic talents to help create a colourful display at Places for People’s Longniddry Village development.
The pupils entered a competition to create health and safety posters, with the winning designs displayed on hoardings around the development, where a range of two, three and four-bedroom homes are currently under construction.
The theme for the designed posters was how to be safe on a construction site - what to do and what not to do. The winners were revealed at a special assembly.
All children from the school were invited to take part in the competition, with one winner from each year presented with a voucher by Places for People. The winning posters can be seen around the development, encouraging everyone to stay safe on and near a construction site.
Allison Sutherland, regional sales and marketing director for Scotland at Places for People, said: “The effort that had gone in to all the health and safety posters was brilliant.
“We were very impressed with the fantastic posters designed by the children - so well done to everyone who took part. Special congratulations to all the winners; not only do the posters look fantastic around our Longniddry Village development but they are also helping to keep people safe.
“One of our aims at Places for People is Putting People First, so working in partnership with the local community to get the message around health and safety on site is a really important project for us.”
The eight winners selected each received a voucher and copies of their winning designs have been made into large posters displayed on the development hoardings.
Places for People’s Longniddry Village is being developed in partnership with landowners Wemyss and March Estates. The development of two, three and four-bedroom homes includes extensive open space with a new village green and restored mill pond.
