Housebuilder helps with home skills

Hauxton Primary School now has all the ingredients to teach children to cook thanks to Redrow Homes.

An extension to the school was part-funded by the award-winning homebuilder as part of its planning obligations in relation to nearby Sanderson Manor and Cobden Gardens. Redrow has also donated a further £800 towards a new multipurpose space.

Head teacher Julie Bateman said:

“An extension housing an extra classroom and a new hall opened in the summer, freeing up space in the main school building. We decided to create a multipurpose area in what was the school kitchen so that we could provide better cooking facilities for the children as part of the design and technology curriculum. We had some funds for this, but were grateful to Redrow for their support in helping kit out the space.”

Redrow has also donated high-vis vests to the school to ensure children can be safe and be seen, plus sticker books and other items, some of which were placed in a time capsule within the extension.

Tonia Tyler, sales director for Redrow Homes (South Midlands), said:

“It’s important that we invest in the neighbourhoods where we’re building for the benefit of both existing residents and our homeowners. Community facilities like the extension to the school will bring far reaching benefits to the local area for very many years to come. We hope the children enjoy learning to cook in the multipurpose area.”

Combining Arts & Crafts inspired architecture and high specification modern interiors, the homes at Sanderson Manor and Cobden Gardens have the recipe for success and some stunning kitchens of their own.
