Norfolk housebuilder Abel Homes chose not to sit on the fence but to build one after a request for help from a local primary school.

Hingham Primary School constructed an outdoor learning space, named the forest school, in March, but was in need of a barrier to separate the newly planted area from the adjacent school playing field.

The Watton firm, which is currently building 88 homes in the village, offered to help by building a 200m wooden fence to keep the new area secure.

Headteacher Vickie Newrick said: “Abel Homes had already been in touch to see if they could assist the school with a project, so this was ideal.

“We really appreciate what they have done for us.”

Paul LeGrice, managing director of Abel Homes, said: “We are already seeing children living on our new site in Hingham attending the school, and we are delighted to have been able to help in such a practical way.”
