Pupils at a Birmingham primary school have been learning all about building houses and looking after the environment with the help of staff from Mansell who are working on a nearby sheltered homes project.
The Stourbridge-based Western region of Mansell organised a design-a-poster competition for pupils at Woodhouse Primary School in Quinton. The school is near Ridgacre Road where Mansell is building the £8.3 million William Lench Court sheltered housing project for Lench’s Trust.
The youngsters were asked to paint a poster with an environmental theme under the title “Wonderful World.” The paintings were judged by Mansell project manager Gavin Ward and community liaison officer Tracey Astbury. Winners were presented with gift tokens donated by Mansell. First prize went to 11 year-old Meghana Vaidya and second prize went to Elizabeth Thorpe, also aged 11.
