Training the next generation of aspiring Burnley builders

Ring Stones have been hosting education sessions on the construction industry with local schools. The sessions come as part of community projects for the development of Dovestone Gardens, Burnley’s first extra care facility.

Children from Casterton Avenue Primary School were given an exciting talk on the safety aspects of big developments like Dovestone Gardens and the types of machinery used onsite, including the biggest crane Ring Stones have installed. Students from reception to year 6 were also given the chance to win prizes as part of a drawing competition.

Ring Stones also visited Sir John Thursby secondary school carrying out career seminars for year 10 students. Members of staff from Ring Stones talked through their skills, experience and career opportunities in the construction industry.

Dovestone Gardens is the first Extra-Care facility in Burnley located at Burnley General Hospital which is being built by Ring Stones on behalf of Calico Homes with Syncora Care providing support services.

Calico Homes are engaging the community in how the scheme will work and the kind of support that is on offer. The community consultations give customers the opportunity to have their say on the development. For more info or to get involved, contact-

James Macaree, Managing Director of Ring Stones; ‘For what is our biggest development to date, it is great to get out into the community and inform the younger generation on our development including the importance of Health and Safety in construction and to raise aspirations about careers in the industry.

Dovestone Gardens really is a development for the community, so it is important to us as a company that we continue to engage with the people who this development affects. As work progresses, we’re looking forward to holding even more events with the local community.’
