Homebuilders enlist Santa’s Little Helper to wanr children about “Elf n’ Safety”

As the Christmas holidays approach, leading developers Barratt and David Wilson Homes haves enlisted one of Santa’s little helpers to send out an important message encouraging children to think about elf n’ safety.

Busy Barratt and David Wilson Homes staff are working on new developments across Milton Keynes, many of which have families with children living nearby. With schools closed over Christmas, children are being told to stay away from building sites as they shouldn’t be visited unsupervised.

Santa has sent one of his elves to visit Barratt and David Wilson Homes’ sites in Milton Keynes, and like every visitor has had to wear a hard hat and hi-vis clothing for protection. The elf is to remind kids to stay on Santa’s ‘nice list’ by keeping clear of building sites at all times.

Ben Kalus, Managing Director at Barratt and David Wilson Homes South Midlands, said: “Children, like elves, can be curious and adventurous, and turn up in the most unlikely places, especially when schools are closed. However, building sites can be dangerous places for little people.

“Developers like ourselves are building more new homes at sites all over the country, but until they are completed these places are very hazardous for young children.

“With the holidays approaching, children should think of their ‘elf n’ safety’ and stay well away from them.”

Barratt Homes is currently building properties at the following developments in Buckinghamshire: Brooklands, Eagles’ Rest, Woburn Downs and Fairfields in Milton Keynes.

David Wilson Homes is also currently building properties in Buckinghamshire at Eagles’ Rest and Woburn Downs, as well as at Lavendon Fields in Lavendon and Brooklands Park in Milton Keynes.
