Leeds pupils’ safety-themed artwork asking drivers to slow down takes runner-up spot in national contest

Creative artwork designed by pupils from Seacroft Grange Primary School, Leeds, has won a runner-up award in a national competition.

Lovell invited children at the school to enter the contest by producing designs to decorate construction site hoardings at a housing scheme which the company is building near the school in Moresdale Lane.

Children came up with artwork asking people driving past the school to think about their speed and slow down.

The national Ivor Goodsite Hoarding competition was organised by the Considerate Constructors Scheme, spearheaded by the Scheme’s Ivor Goodsite mascot.

Lovell health, safety and environmental manager Matthew Jarvis says: “The Seacroft Grange pupils produced some highly impressive designs carrying a strong and important message about safety.

“We’ve thoroughly enjoyed collaborating with the school and getting the children involved in the construction project in this way. It’s important to us as part of our commitment to involving communities and helping children learn more about our industry. Construction sites across the country take part in the contest, so we’re delighted that the excellent artwork by the Seacroft Grange pupils has been recognised with the presentation of a runner-up award.”

The Lovell team is building a £1.7 million specialist supported housing scheme at Moresdale Lane for supported housing provider HB Villages. HB Villages is a joint venture with Community Solutions, which is a part of Lovell sister company Morgan Sindall Investments Limited.
