Carpenter Jack Peglar made a mud kitchen for the children, which they used during the visit and has since been delivered to the school, which is less than two miles from the development.
Helen Haskell, teacher at St Joseph’s RC Primary School, said: “It was lovely for the children to be able to see the new community taking shape at St Mary’s Garden Village. We’re grateful to the Edenstone Group for taking the time to show them round, teaching them about health and safety and helping them identify some of the wildlife in the area. The visit and the gift of the mud kitchen will really help inspire their imaginations and encourage their creative writing skills.”
St Mary’s Garden Village is being developed by the Edenstone Group’s two hosuig brands – Edenstone Homes and Bluebell Homes. The new community will eventually feature 290 homes, plus a range of facilities including feature allotments, walking and fitness trails with equipment, and a gym with a community hub.
