Harron Homes welcomed A-Level students from The Joseph Whitaker in Rainworth to its development in Edwinstowe as part of the students’ course field trip. As part of their studies, 23 geography students and accompanying teachers were given a guided tour around the Thoresby Vale development.

Jon Souter, school head of geography, “I was delighted when Harron Homes accepted our proposal to survey the site, to then also offer to guide our students around was a fantastic gesture and we are grateful staff took time from their busy jobs to facilitate this.

“The students will have learned a lot from the experience, and I’ve already had a few students expressing interest in getting into the housebuilding industry.”

Mr Walters said: “At Harron, we like to contribute to the local community in various ways, and schools are always key to that.

“We were delighted to show the pupils around our development and hope they took a lot way from the experience.”
