Award-winning retirement developer McCarthy and Stone welcomed some fresh faces to its team as little learners from the Hucknall Day Nursery were invited to visit a new site in Whyburn Court.
The children from the nursery donned hard hats and hi vis jackets to take a look around the site , where the construction of a new retirement devlopment is now well underway.
Accompanied by Darren Clarke, site manager at the development, the children were taken on a tour of the new building and got to see the site’s diggers and cranes up-close.
The children also took part in various construction-related activities, including dressing up in protective clothing, laying a brick, watching a large tower crane pick up beams, and learning about the dangers construction sites pose.
Kym Shepherd, Deputy officer-in-charge at the Hucknall Day Nursery, said: “We all had a fantastic day with the McCarthy and Stone team and the children loved seeing the enormous diggers in action.
“We’re really grateful to the Site Manager, Darren, for inviting us to come down and to all the team for giving up their time.
“All the children found it really enjoyable and loved hearing about how the machinery all works.
“It was informative too, particularly in reinforcing the message about the dangers of playing on building sites.”
The development was even named by one of the nursery’s toddlers, Johanna Kiddy, who found inspiration for the name from the river Whyhurn that runs by her house.
The forthcoming development will compromise of 37 one and two bedroom apartments for the over 60s, which are currently available to buy off plan.Call 0800 310 0384 or visit www.mccarthyandstone.co.uk for more details.
