Leicestershire homebuilder helps pupils look on bright side for road safety week

Pupils at Fleckney Primary School in Leicestershire recently received a donation of reflective vests from David Wilson Homes to help them shine bright for Road Safety Week (15th to 21st November).

The five star housebuilder gave the school 35 high vis vests for its pupils to wear whilst walking to and from school, ensuring they can be easily seen on the roads as the darker nights draw in.

Road Safety Week runs in November each year and encourages pupils to celebrate the journey to school on foot.

Tim Leah, Headteacher at Fleckney Primary School, said: “Lots of our young pupils walk the journey to and from school and their safety whilst doing this is incredibly important to us.

“That’s why we’re incredibly grateful to David Wilson Homes for its donation of high vis vests. We were thrilled to accept the vests and our pupils will be using them throughout Road Safety Week and in the future.”

Fleckney Primary School is located near the homebuilder’s Fleckney Fields development on Kilby Road 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 time for schools across the country as a result of the pandemic, the leading developer is as committed as ever to providing support during Road Safety Week and beyond.

Rachael Harrison, Sales Director at David Wilson 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 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 Fleckney Primary School during Road Safety Week.”

David Wilson Homes’ high vis vests have proven to be particularly useful during Road Safety Week and beyond, with their features set to benefit pupils in their future journeys to school throughout the winter months.
