CHC takes part in Hope Academy 'Breakout Day'

14 Feb 2014

As part of the Ravenhead Household Waste Recycling Centre Project in St Helens, staff from Cheetham Hill Construction and client Merseyside Recycling Waste Authority recently took part in a "Breakout Day" at the Hope Academy in Newton-le-Willows, Merseyside.

The aim of this creative Breakout Day was to promote wellbeing amongst pupils.

Our activity day was undertaken by a group of pupils from years 7-10 and gave them an insight into the redevelopment of Ravenhead HWRC, including sustainable construction at the site and the implementation of a range of eco measures aimed at making the new centre greener for residents to use.

An interactive presentation was undertaken in the morning, which covered the history of the site, the construction process and its environmental impact and the new household waste recycling facilities that will be on offer, together with the recycling process as a whole and how best to reduce, re-use recycle.

In the afternoon pupils took part in activity sessions that allowed them to get hands on and produce items that will be incorporated into the Burtonhead Road site. These included:

Bird boxes - constructed from sustainable materials the boxes will be attached to trees on the site to encourage bird nesting.

Art Installation - Commissioned by the MRWA and designed by local artist Bernadette Hughes from the Rainford Design Studio, this art installation will be a permanent feature on the site. The theme is based on "Re-use, Reduce, Recycle" and all materials being incorporated into the mosaic piece have been recycled
