Clitheroe school pupils receive hi-vis jackets' gift from homebuilder

Property developer Miller Homes has donated a number of high visibility vests to St James CE Primary School’s Year 6 "Rowan" class, to ensure their safety when walking or cycling home from school and other activities during the dark evenings.

The donation follows Miller Homes’ previous connection to the school, after working with star pupil Gracie Rae Spedding in 2021, to keep the countryside clean in Clitheroe. The homebuilder also recently supported the town’s Salvation Army with a Christmas toy donation, and is working with the local Brownie group too.

Clare Noakes, Sales Director for Miller Homes in the North West, said: “As we bring new homes to Clitheroe, it’s important for us to care for the community too, and ensuring that the
