St Austell Schoolchildren Enjor Tour of Higher Trewhiddle

Children from a St Austell primary school learnt how new homes are built during a visit to Wain Homes’ Higher Trewhiddle development.

After taking a look around the three show homes, the Year One and Two children from Gorran School donned hi-vis jackets and were given a tour of the development with Wain Homes’ Construction Director, Site Manager, Health and Safety Manager, Contracts Manager and Construction PA, before taking away a goody bag to remember their visit.

Gemma Curley, Wain Homes’ Sales and Marketing Administrator who organised the visit, said: “Seeing how a new house is built was part of a project the class were working on so we were pleased to welcome them to Higher Trewhiddle where they could see each stage of construction, from digging the foundations through to the interior design of a finished property.

“The children were fascinated to watch homes being built and I think we might have inspired the next generation of future housebuilders.”

Liz Sampson, class teacher at Gorran School, said: “I would like to thank Wain Homes for organising our visit; the children got so much out of it and have been so enthused. 

“The Wain team put in a great deal of time and effort and really thought about explaining the whole process of house building and delivered the tour in a way that was clear and understandable for the children. It was an extremely enjoyable visit and the hi-vis jackets and the goody bags were such a lovely touch also!”

Wain Homes is building 86 homes and apartments at Higher Trewhiddle and the sales centre is open daily for appointments between 10am and 5pm.
