Ivor Visits New Little Mill


New Little Mill had their considerate constructors visit recently, achieving an excellent score of 42/50. Ivor Goodsite, the Considerate Constructors mascot also attended the site to have a look around and meet the team building this fantastic project.

Following on from Ivor’s visit, we have been running two fantastic ‘Where’s Ivor’ competitions with local schools. Hoping to engage school children with the construction industry we have designed two competitions, one competition for Key Stage 1 students and one for Key Stage 2.  The packs include word searches, colouring in and a ‘where’s Ivor’ competition in which the children have to find Ivor in an on-site photograph.

Once, the schools return in September we will be engaging with them to deliver further competitions.
