A Cwmbran schoolgirl is helping to warn children of the dangers of building sites. Lucie Allison, eight, from Pontnewydd Primary School, won a poster competition organised by Us and LCB Construction.
Her drawing has been blown up and is now on display at the entrance to a building site where three bungalows are being built near her school.
Some of our staff and staff from LCB Construction visited the school to give her a prize and present the school council with a £1,000 cheque.
The two runners-up were Amelia Taylor, five, and Jacob Whitcombe, five.
Lewis Hughes, contracts manager at LCB Construction, said: “We recently gave the pupils a building site safety talk and asked them to draw a poster. The standard of entries was fantastic.
“At the same time as giving out prizes for the posters we were also proud to be give the school a donation towards some work they are having done in the playground.”
Kerry Waters, head of Pontnewydd Primary School, said: “We were over the moon to be given a cheque for £1,000. Our school council want a pagoda with shade for pupils to be able to sit under and this kind donation is going to help us get it built.”
Steve Jones, our contract manager, said: “We are building homes across Torfaen so educating children about the dangers of building sites is essential. This was a successful project thanks to the involvement of our contractor, LCB Construction, and the keenness of the school to take part.”
