Safety Poster Competition Presentation – Holytown

School Visits – Holytown

15th December 2009

Artistic pupils at two primary schools in Holytown (North Lanarkshire) have been rewarded by Lovell Partnerships Limited after designing the winning entries in a safety poster competition. Earlier this year, Lovell visited Christ the King Primary School in Melrose Avenue and Holytown Primary School in Willow Avenue, to give pupils at both schools a presentation as part of its ongoing campaign to educate children about the dangers associated with construction sites.

Lovell regional Safety, Health and Environment Manager, William Lindsay, and Site Manager, Robert Donald, returned to the two schools to announce the winners. They were joined by Ivor Goodsite, who helped to hand over a goody bag to each of the six winners, including a £20 ‘Hobbycraft’ voucher, selection box and other goodies. Each winner also received a blown up laminated version of their winning entry. In addition, the winning posters are set to be used by Lovell on its construction site hoardings, to let the whole town see their efforts.
“The pupils came up with some fantastic entries and it was really difficult for us to choose the winners,” explains William Lindsay. “At this time of year, it’s essential that we reinforce the message that playing on a construction site can have extremely serious consequences.”
