Winvic’s very own Hatfield Business Park site staff donned the construction industry mascot “Honor Goodsite” costume and bravely strutted their stuff in front of a school assembly of 180 students, with ages ranging from six to eleven, at Howe Dell Primary School on 22nd March 2018.
Honor works hard to promote a positive image for the construction industry and how it is a profession where men and women can work together equally. Honor and her team handed out packs for the pupils that contained colouring books and pencils. This was part of Winvic’s continued involvement with the Considerate Constructors Scheme and was done in partnership with Arlington the site developers of Hatfield Business Park and Air Business, a market-leader in global mail, fulfilment, distribution and subscription management, who will be in residence once the building is complete.
“It was a great opportunity for Howe Dell to build links with the wider community and for us to find out more about our new neighbours and the construction industry. The children thoroughly enjoyed meeting Honor Goodsite and the team.”
Miss Tina Christmas, Howe Dell Primary
It gave the school, its pupils and staff a good chance to meet their new neighbours and played a very important role of not only welcoming those involved in the construction process, but also allowed the pupils to ask Honor a range of questions expanding on their knowledge of the; the construction industry, site health and safety and the 70,000 square foot industrial scheme being built adjacent to the school.
Honor and team were well received by the pupils of Howe Dell Primary School, they stated “The man told us lots of information and he smiled lots” and equally Winvic valued this chance to provide a unique learning opportunity, whilst continuing to build strong relationships with Howe Dell Primary School.
