Create Homes, a residential housebuilder has completed work on Pilling St John’s Primary School, Preston, to improve their school hall and access to outdoor facilities.

Create Homes are currently building new houses at St William’s Gate on Garstang Road, however site manager Jason Dandy and the team at SML Painters and Decorators Ltd and LUXE Brickwork Limited have been working hard to help the school over the holidays.

The team have redecorated Pilling St John’s with new coats of paint, and created a new opening in the playground wall to allow access to the running track and school forest area.

In a message to Create Homes, acting Headteacher, Lisa Hill wrote: “Please pass on my thanks to the workers who completed the work.

“They were professional, friendly and very approachable. They explained what they were doing and what they needed clearly to us and put us at ease.

“They worked with us to ensure that they had access to school and have done a brilliant job in the work they carried out.

“The children have been very excited to see the hall painted and the hole in the wall has already made a massive difference to access to the field and Forest School area.”

Georgia Bridge, Area Sales Manager at Create Homes commented:

“St William’s Gate development has proved very popular with buyers and I feel that our connection with the local community can only get stronger as more new families move onto the development.

“We wish everyone at the school the very best for the future and we are really happy that you like the improvements.”
