Brickworks' donation helps to build sensory garden at Peterborough school
A school in Peterborough looking to create a special garden for its students has received 6.5 tonnes of free bricks from a building products manufacturer.
Staff from Forterra’s Kings Dyke brickworks in Whittlesey delivered the London Bricks to Park House School for a safe sensory garden at a former Methodist chapel, now part of the school.
The building is being converted into a therapy base for children with learning difficulties.
School business manager Luke Rich said: “We’d like to thank Forterra for their generous donation of bricks, which will make a huge difference towards our garden project.”
Steve Jeynes, plant manager, said: “The garden is a worthwhile cause we could readily contribute to and we hope our quality bricks will be put to good use in an outdoor area the children can enjoy.”
Forterra is a leading manufacturer of a diverse range of concrete and clay building products. The company employs approximately 1,600 people in the UK across its 18 manufacturing facilities.
