Children from a local youth club were given an important lesson on how to stay safe around constructions sites. Ivor Goodsite joined boys and girls on a tour of a £50 million development, where 400 new homes are being built. Ivor Goodsite raised awareness of how to avoid hazards and dangers on construction sites. Ivor also promoted the benefits of working in the construction industry.

The children were taken on a site tour with site managers Stuart Bull and Luke Redshaw. Whilst on the site the children got to help lay bricks and were shown how to use construction machinery.
