Local construction companies donate £5,000 worth of Covid-19 protective technology to deserving school
JB Services Group and Dimension Build, New Forest based companies specialising in construction, have this week donated £5,000 worth of Covid-19 protective technology to local school, Pennington Juniors.
Following the outbreak of Coronavirus in the UK, the Pennington school were pro-active in finding an approach to keeping their pupils safe throughout the pandemic. With the help of JB Services Group and Dimension Build, thermal cameras have now been donated and installed ready for the school to open fully and welcome all students back safely in September 2020. This will make them one of the first schools in the New Forest to implement this technology.
Susan Hotine, Admin Officer at the Pennington Junior school, commented:
“A big thank you goes to JB Services Group and Dimension build. The thermal camera is an amazing asset for the running of our school, not just during a pandemic but for the foreseeable future. When we first re-opened the site following government announcements, we were stopping every individual on their way into the building. Now, the start of each day will run much more smoothly and comfortably.”
Jim Clark, Director of Dimension Build who grew up in Pennington and has been providing construction services across The New Forest for the last 25 years, added:
“At Dimension Build, it is really important to us to ensure we are supporting our local community where possible. We were delighted to be able to donate a thermal camera to Pennington school and it now means up to 30 pupils, teachers and parents will be able to enter the premises at once, as the camera can both detect and single out the source of the heat amongst a large collection of people. Ultimately, it brings as much normality back to the school as possible and makes it the fun place of learning that it has always been.”
