School children from Charles Saer Community Primary School in Fleetwood took part in the town’s annual carnival this weekend thanks to the hard work of the school staff and the donations of a Lancashire construction firm.
Preston-based Conlon Construction, which is currently re-building the school, helped the children make their entry stand out from the crowd as they created a ‘Building Site’ float for the children to enter into the summer carnival.
Conlon supplied the school with hard hats, high visibility jackets and orange mesh fencing to decorate the builders’ float whilst year 4 pupils performed as a samba band as they made their way through the lively procession on Saturday (16 June).
Michael Conlon, construction director at Conlon Construction said it was a pleasure for the firm to be involved in the carnival as it continues to work closely with Charles Saer Community Primary during the construction of the school.
He added: “Conlon is strongly committed to supporting the local communities in which it works and we were delighted to be able to help provide the school with a float for the Fleetwood carnival. We thoroughly enjoyed working with the children and staff at Charles Saer Community Primary School to make it all happen.
Mrs Thackway, headteacher at Charles Saer Community Primary school said:
We were thrilled that Conlon embraced our carnival entry with such enthusiasm and we had a great day thanks to the help from the firm. We are very happy to be working with Conlon who go over and above to keep us fully informed at every stage of the building work at the school.
Conlon is currently working on the £4.7m construction of the new school building.
