Wienerberger donate bricks to primary school

Wienerberger donates bricks and roof tiles to new school building

  • 25 Apr 2016

Wienerberger has donated 6,000 of its bricks and roof tiles to the construction of a new facility at the Ewhurst C of E Infant School in Surrey.

The new brick building, situated just three miles from Wienerberger’s Ewhurst factory, will replace an old wooden classroom called The Miller Hut, originally built in the 1950s.

The facility will provide additional teaching space and will also be the location of the school’s new breakfast and after-school clubs.

Wienberger bricks used in construction of Ewhurst C of E classroomThe development is scheduled for completion in late June. Wienerberger’s sustainability manager Stephanie Palmer visited the site at the end of February to see how it was progressing, alongside Councillor Alan Young and Bob Arnold, Chair of Governors. 

Bob Arnold commented: “We were delighted when Wienerberger agreed to donate the tiles and bricks that we needed to construct a new stand-alone building on the school site. 

Not only has the school received support from an organisation with operations in the village, but the bricks are also an almost perfect match in colour and shading to the original stonework. The extra space that has been generated by our new building should enable the school to remain a pivotal part of the community for generations to come.”

Stephanie Palmer added: “We are pleased to have contributed to this project which will enable the school to provide a valuable service to local families. It is important to us at Wienerberger that we positively engage with the communities in which we operate, and this is one of many different activities taking place across the country.”
