Hatherleigh schoolchildren learn site safety lessons


Pupils at Hatherleigh Community Primary
School designed safety posters for the town
after learning about the potential dangers on
building sites.

Kingswood Homes is developing The Market
Quarter in the centre of the town and project
manager Alex Swann visited the school before

poster challenge.

Headteacher Alan Monger said: “Alex was

The designers of the winning posters were all
presented with book tokens.

Sales at The Market Quarter launched this month
with several reservations already taken

The first show home will be ready to view later in
the summer with the first homes ready for their new
owners by the end of the year.
