Local School Children’s Artwork Brightens up Building Site
Rapport Housing & Care and Jenner Contractors invited the children of Wateringbury Church of England Primary School to create some artwork for the site’s hoarding boards.
The children were invited to the site of RHC’s new extra care housing scheme in Wateringbury to create some artwork as part of an Ivor Goodsite competition, created to make children aware of both the dangers of working on a construction site, as well as how great it is to work in the industry.
Using the theme of the village, its history and the surrounding areas, the children created some lovely paintings, which were recently displayed on the boards in The Orpines, Wateringbury.
On Friday 14th June, they made the short walk to the site to see their works of art on display and to take a look at how the site is progressing. With many of the children interested in building and working in construction, it was a very interesting outing!
Oliver Garsed-Bennet, Head of Property Services at Rapport Housing & Care commented: “As an organisation, we are committed to ensuring our developments are embedded in their communities from the outset and working with local schools is a great way to do that.
“The artwork the children created was great and they loved visiting the site. We are looking forward to developing the relationship and inviting the children back to learn more about the site as it changes and nears completion.”
The development in Wateringbury will comprise 51 one- and two-bedroom apartments for over 55s. The apartments will be available to rent, buy or part buy through Older Person’s Shared Ownership.
