Award-winning housebuilder Bellway has donated 15 tons of pea gravel to Knowsley Lane Primary School, located on Astley Road in Huyton, to help with the school’s outdoor project.
Following lockdown and schools re-opening, Knowsley Lane Primary compiled a comprehensive document outlining its plans to enhance its outdoor area, with the aim of creating a spacious and stimulating space for all pupils.
Bellway, who are currently building three and four bedroom homes at its Earlsfield Park development, located on Knowsley Lane in Huyton, wanted to help and after speaking to the school, sourced and delivered pea gravel, kick starting the project.
With limited funding and a big project to complete, Knowsley Lane Primary School was delighted with Bellway’s kind donation.
Emma Dilworth, School Principal at Knowsley Lane Primary School, comments: “The upgrading of the outdoor space was very much needed, and this became even more apparent during the last year when our thoughts naturally turned to school life post-pandemic.
“We came up with a project that ensured the outdoor area would be inviting, appealing and stimulating for pupils, as well as practical, but it came with a cost. Bellway’s kind donation of pea gravel was very much appreciated – it freed up some funds but it also allowed us to make a start on the project.”
Jenny Bell, Sales Director at Bellway North West, adds: “The outdoor project at Knowsley Lane Primary School is really special and it will no doubt be a real benefit to the school and its pupils. We are thrilled to play a small part by providing the pea gravel and look forward to seeing the space once finished.”
Emma concludes: “Without the support of parents and local businesses, such as Bellway, this project would take much longer to complete so we are very grateful to them for getting in touch and offering help during what was a very challenging time.”
Bellway currently has several developments across the North West, including Earlsfield Park on Knowsley Lane in Huyton.
