Ivor Goodsite visits Penmachno

Youngsters from Penmachno were given a lesson in keeping safe around a building site.

Teaching the pupils from Ysgol Penmachno was Ivor Goodsite, the mascot for the Considerate Constructors Scheme.

Ivor was there to promote safety around a new development of affordable housing being built by housing association Cartrefi Conwy near the school.

Six houses are being built on the Maes-y-Waen site – four three-bedroom properties and two two-bedroom properties.

A second phase would see a further six houses being built when a local need is demonstrated.

Gwynne Jones, Cartrefi Conwy’s Operations Director, said: “Ivor Goodsite explained to the children site procedures, building methods and the materials to be used in the build.

“He also emphasised the dangers of construction sites and why they should never play on them.

“It is imperative to for us and our contractors to be active in the communities where we operate and to promote safety to local school children.

“The lessons that the children have learnt, with the assistance of Ivor, will benefit them not only now but also later in life.”
