Employees at Barratt David Wilson Homes, who is currently building its Clipstone Park development on Briggington Way, recently volunteered at local school Clipstone Brook Lower to paint fences and sheds in their early years’ outdoor classroom space.

The housebuilder team swapped their tools and hard hats for overalls and paint brushes earlier this month to give their volunteering time to the local school. The day saw the team paint a number of items in the outdoor classroom space including fences and sheds. The effort will go towards the freshening up of the classroom for early years students to enjoy in the summer when the weather gets warmer and brighter.

Charlotte Honour, Teacher at Clipstone Brook Lower School comments: “I would like to thank Barratt David Wilson North Thames on behalf of all at Clipstone Brook Lower School. This is part of an ongoing relationship with the team at Clipstone Park, and we are always happy to welcome them back, especially when it means they are doing some manual labour for us! The brightening up of the fences and sheds has made a real difference, and the students and teachers alike are looking forward to utilising out outdoor space during the summer months.”

Marc Woolfe, Head of Sales for Barratt David Wilson North Thames, commented: “We are thrilled to work with Clipstone Brook Lower School again in helping them refresh their outbuildings for the children to achieve maximum enjoyment in their outdoor lessons. Our team wanted to use their dedicated volunteering day this year to help support the local school and its pupils and we know that the start of the summer term is an incredibly busy time for schools, so we hope that our visit and time made a real difference!”

Currently available at Clipstone Park is a selection of three and four-bedroom homes with prices starting at £407,500 for a three-bedroom house.
