Merseyside homebuilders team up to educate children on “Elf n’ Safety”

Day 9 of Bdaily’s Twelve Days of Christmas News: Busy Barratt and David Wilson Homes staff are working on new developments across Merseyside, 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.

Thus, the two homebuilders have partnered to help educate local children on the matter of health and safety in respect to building sites via the unconventional medium of a plush elf doll.

A statement issued by the companies reads: “Santa has sent one of his fully vaccinated elves to visit Barratt and David Wilson Homes’ sites in Merseyside and, like every visitor, has had to wear a hard hat and hi-vis clothing for protection.”

Rob Holbrook, managing director at Barratt and David Wilson Homes North West, 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.”

Barratt Homes is currently building homes at Victoria Mews in Southport and Sundial Place in Thornton, while David Wilson Homes is currently building homes at Pavilion Gardens in Southport and Pinewood Park in Formby.
