Wates’ Painting Competition

A local nursery in Bristol

20th October 2014

Wates Construction and Ivor Goodsite visited a local nursery next door to their project in Bristol and gave a presentation about safety on and around construction sites. The pupils and the staff all had a great afternoon and the children were awarded with colouring books, hard hats and hi vis jackets.

A painting competition was also launched whereby the pupils were asked to draw what they enjoyed the most from the visit. The lucky winner of the competition will have their painting blown up and installed on Wates’ hoarding and will also be given a trip to an amusement park of their choice for 4 people.

A Wates community day has also been arranged where the play rooms of the nursery will be decorated along with the outside fencing to their play area.

The children had a great time and loved meeting Ivor!
