Children visit Uplands Retail site with Ivor Goodsite

Somerset

26th August 2015

Uplands Retail invited Ivor Goodsite along with 15 other children aged between 3 and 9 to one of their construction sites in Somerset.

The children got to visit the site and see what work goes on behind the hoarding.

This gave an insight into what type of jobs there are in the construction industry and what potential jobs the children can do when they grown up.
