Heron Bros is committed to improving the image of construction by engaging with the local community. On construction of Southport’s new £20 million Mental Health Facility, Heron Bros partnered with their client, Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust, and local Kew Woods Primary School to unveil hoarding artwork which raises awareness of mental wellbeing.
Heron Bros and Mersey Care representatives ran sessions in the classroom to discuss themes from the ‘Five Ways to Wellbeing’, an evidence-based approach to improving health outcomes for everyone by following simple principles such as being active, keep learning, and so on.
Kew Woods Primary was keen to take part as the school is proactive in promoting mental wellbeing and awareness. The school also teaches mindfulness to encourage children to develop and improve concentration, interact with others and help cope with stress and anxiety.
All of the children’s submitted paintings are featured on the site hoardings and five individual prizes were awarded to children whose artwork was judged as most representative of each of the Five Ways to Wellbeing.
Heron Bros was delighted to put their site hoarding to such good use in promoting the ‘5 Ways to Wellbeing’ and improving the appearance of the site.
This video shows how local school children have helped brighten the build of Heron Bros’ state of the art mental health hospital in Southport.
