Marking Great Big Green Week 2023, award-winning housebuilder The Hill Group teamed up with Attleborough Primary School on Friday 16th June to deliver a unique sustainable craft event to celebrate the launch of its Eco Adventure Activity Book. The exciting educational event saw children from the school’s Eco Club greeted by Hill’s lovable site safety mascots, Jack and Jill, who helped the children create bird feeders from recycled plastic bottles. The event marks the latest in Hill’s ongoing dedication to positively contributing to the local communities surrounding its developments, and its commitment to sustainability.
Great Big Green Week runs from the 10th-18th June and is the UK’s largest celebration of community action to tackle climate change and protect nature. Known for its scenic natural beauty and diverse species of birdlife, Norfolk is a perfect location to highlight the importance of looking after the local environment and wildlife. Set less than one mile from Attleborough Primary School, The Hill Group’s eco-conscious development The Gables, a collection of 97 traditional two-, three- and four-bedroom homes, hosts extensive green space, allotments and playing fields interspersed with habitat ponds to boost wildlife and benefit residents.
The group of eco-conscious four to 11-year-olds from Attleborough Primary School got to work crafting handmade bird feeders. This highlighted just one of the many fun and engaging activities included in Hill’s new Activity Book, which has been designed to show how making small changes at home can create a big difference. The feeders, when hung, will enable feathered friends to visit and feast, bringing the joy of nature to their surroundings – and for an added touch of creativity, the 5-star housebuilder also gifted the children cardboard playhouses to colour in and decorate.
Mr Copland, Headteacher at Attleborough Primary School comments, “On behalf of the staff and students at Attleborough Primary School, we would like to thank The Hill Group for holding this fantastic environmentally conscious event, also marking Great Big Green Week 2023. Hill’s new Eco Adventure Activity Book is a superb resource from which our children can have fun whilst also learning more about the importance of protecting the natural environment. The children thoroughly enjoyed creating their bird feeders and Jack and Jill were a fun addition to the day. We have already hung some of the feeders in areas around our playground, and the children are looking forward to seeing a variety of birdlife coming to visit Attleborough Primary.”
Rebecca Littler, Group Sales and Marketing Director at The Hill Group comments, “Sustainability and environmental preservation are core values for The Hill Group, and we strive to share these with the local communities surrounding our developments. We were delighted to partner with Attleborough Primary School and launch Hill’s new Eco Adventure Activity Book for this year’s Great Big Green Week. It has been wonderful to be able to teach the children about the importance of environmental protection and responsibility in a fun and engaging way. Our new site safety mascots Jack and Jill thoroughly enjoyed meeting the children and helping to make the bird feeders, and we thank all the children and staff at Attleborough Primary School for making this such a successful event.”
