A group of schoolchildren got a closer look at the ongoing work on a new housing development in Hadleigh.

Six pupils from St Mary’s Church of England Primary School donned hard hats and high-visibility jackets for a visit to the Tyefield Place and Manor Gardens developments in High Street, organised by developer McCarthy and Stone.

The children also learned about the importance of staying safe on a construction site.

Headteacher Andrew Frolish said: “The children thoroughly enjoyed their visit. We’re grateful to the McCarthy and Stone team for inviting us.

“Everyone found it enjoyable and informative, and it was great to get the children thinking about safety in and around building sites in such an engaging way.”
