Family-owned Caddick Construction teamed up with a group of green-fingered pupils at Northowram Primary School near Halifax as part of an autumnal planting project.
The eager pupils donned Caddick Construction hard hats and miniature hi-vis vests to dig deep and create a dozen planters to be used to help brighten up the Caddick “Wakefield 515” warehouse site in West Yorkshire, currently under construction. Caddick also supplied the compost and plants, and the children made great use out of old Caddick hard hats, turning them into the unique hanging baskets.
Ian Marshall runs the school’s gardening club and helped organise the planting project with the children, aged between 4-11. He said: “The children were brilliant, they really got stuck in – literally! Fortunately, the hi-vis vests supplied by Caddick kept the worst of the compost off their clothes, but the children really enjoyed creating something and learnt a few new gardening skills along the way.”
Nicola Jones from Caddick Construction added: “The kids had a great time, what’s not to like about being out and about and getting your hands dirty! We hope the hanging baskets will add a little colour around our construction site, as well as helping us to recycle quite a few of our old hard hats.”
The planting weekend is just one of several community initiatives undertaken across the region by Caddick Construction which has its Head Office in Knottingley and a North West HQ in Warrington.
