The seven volunteers from the community-minded contractor pulled on their gardening gloves and spent a day trimming overgrown trees and bushes, redefining plants, removing waste and generally having a tidy-up of the garden which is hugely popular with the children.

Ian Harvey, Head Teacher for Winchburgh Primary School, said: “The garden provides vital quiet space away from the playground for the children and I felt the area needed some special care. I’m thrilled with what the team from Morrison Construction has achieved – they worked really hard and have done a wonderful job.

“The garden is a more welcoming space for the children. They will love using it.”

Christina Calder, Performance Manager for Morrison Construction, said: “We were so happy to see our work at the school’s garden appreciated. I hope the children get hours of enjoyment thanks to the teams hard work.”

The project was co-ordinated by Winchburgh Developments as part of its and Morrison Construction’s commitment to working with local communities. Morrison Construction is currently undertaking a £1m water main upgrade near Winchburgh village on behalf of the developer, future proofing the existing water network and supporting the exciting development plans for the area. When complete, the masterplan will bring at least 3,450 new homes, improved transport links, employment opportunities, state-of-the-art schools and stunning new outdoor spaces to this historic village.
