A surprise visit for Southmoor Pre-School children

Southmoor Pre-School Visit

Southmoor Pre-School children enjoyed a surprise visit from local housebuilder Hayfield Homes last week, who made a donation to the school and chatted to the children about building as part of its Commitment to the Community programme.

After a crash course in health and safety, Hayfield Homes donated £300 and, to their delight, added to the children’s dressing up collection with high vis jackets and hard hats, so that they could better get into the spirit of building.

Jackie Taylor, Southmoor Pre-School Manager, said of the visit, “House building in the local area has sparked the children’s curiosity, so they were really thrilled when Harriet and Sean from Hayfield Homes arrived with the high vis jackets and hard hats – they couldn’t wait to dress up and show off their new things.

“We are very grateful for the kind donation, which will go towards purchasing new construction resources for the children, providing them with endless opportunities to develop hand-eye coordination, spatial reasoning, language and maths skills, problem-solving and creative, critical thinking.” 

Hayfield Homes prides itself on its Commitment to the Community programme, dedicating time and resources to support local people and businesses in and around the areas in which it builds. Harriet Dickson, Sales Manager at Hayfield Homes, comments, “It’s amazing to be able to meet the children of Southmoor Pre-School, and hopefully we’ve given them some valuable knowledge about building sites and maybe even inspired the next generation of housebuilders!”

Hayfields is the housebuilders’ development of new homes in Southmoor, a collection of 2, 3, 4 & 5 bedroom homes with spacious layouts and an outstanding specification. Laid out in a traditional cul-de-sac style, Hayfields is a ready-made neighbourhood that blends with the existing village, with large areas of open space and landscaping, giving residents a rustic environment in which to live.

The show home at Hayfields is located at Faringdon Road, Southmoor, Oxfordshire, OX13 5BH and is open daily from 10am-5pm.
