GlaxoSmithKline enlist the help of Honor for a demonstration on Site Safety!

Durham
March 2018

GlaxoSmithKline kindly invited Honor down to their site in Durham in collaboration with numerous other contractors for a day of site safety with one of their local schools. After a demonstration on site with the children, they moved to a hall rented next to the site, where a delicious lunch was provided by Sodexo. After lunch, the children carried out activities such as building structures from marshmallows and dried spaghetti, building straw bridges and drawing pictures of their day.

Thirty £10 prizes were presented to the children who made the best structures and built the biggest straw bridges. As the children left they were each given hats, torches and an Easter egg all donated by the contractors on site.

Honor would just like to put on record a huge thank you to all the contractors involved: GlaxoSmithKline, Mclaughlin & Harvey Construction Ltd, Hewitsons, Wilson James, SES Engineering Services, Sherwoods, Alderclad, Turner & Townsend, Sodexo and Fairways. It was collaboration at its best with the whole team working together in support of the Considerate Constructors Scheme.
