DWSM – SGB-4519 – Students at Lavendon School with bag tags donated by David Wilson Homes
Students at Lavendon School in Milton Keynes received a donation of reflective bag tags to help them shine brightly on their way to school for Walk to School month last month.
International School Walk Month takes place every October and was created to raise awareness of the importance of getting children active by walking or jogging to school every day.
Home builder David Wilson Homes gave the school 160 high-visibility bag tags for his students to wear when walking, biking or scootering to school, ensuring they can be easily seen on the roads as the dark nights approach.
Lisa Watson, Principal of Lavendon School, said, “Many of our young students commute to and from school and their safety while doing this is extremely important to us.
“This is why we are truly grateful to David Wilson Homes for their donation of high visibility bag tags. We were delighted to accept the bags and our students will be using them throughout October and into the future.
The Lavendon School is located near the home builder’s Lavendon Fields development on White Canons Drive, and the donation of high visibility bag tags is another part of David Wilson Homes’ outreach to the local community.
In what has been a difficult time for schools across the country due to the pandemic, the lead developer is more committed than ever to providing support during Walk to School Month and beyond.
John Dillon, Managing Director of David Wilson Homes South Midlands, said: “We want to make sure that students in local communities stay visible now that the darkest nights are here, and our donation has hopefully always encouraged them. to be practiced in complete safety during the month of the walk to school.
“It’s a campaign that we actively support every year as we strive to help local schoolchildren in their efforts to get around on foot, and the bag tags have proven to be both effective and practical.
“Due to the COVID-19 crisis, it is even more important for us to support local schools in and around the communities we are building, so we are delighted to have had the chance to support Lavendon School during the month Walk to school. “
