CONSTRUCTION sites are not playgrounds.
That's the message from a group of Bassingbourn Primary School pupils who designed posters for a competition.
The competition was organised by building firm Lovell as part of an ongoing campaign to raise awareness among youngsters that they should never play on construction sites.
Darryl Hammond, the company's health and safety manager, visited the school with the Lovell's hard hat mascots Lenny and Laura, who presented the children with book token prizes.

Mr Hammond said: "The standard of entries was excellent and we were really impressed with the designs.

All the posters designed by the pupils will now be displayed on the site's hoardings.
