To mark the coronation of His Majesty the King, housebuilder Dandara has teamed up with a local carpentry firm to inspire school children to learn more about the country’s history.
John Boynes Carpentry donated a handcrafted wooden book hut and the housebuilder gifted a selection of history and fiction books to Kingsdown and Ringwood Primary School.
To celebrate the historic event at Westminster Abbey on Saturday 6 May, pupils will be invited to express their creativity by decorating the hut with their own royal designs.
Louise Norman, Head of Sales at Dandara South East, commented: “The book hut looks amazing – we are so grateful to John Boyens and the team for all their hard work. I am sure when the children decorate the hut it will look incredible and I am sure Definitely fit for a king.
“We hope the Book Hut encourages young people to pick up a book more often and maybe even learn a little more about the kings and queens who have shaped our history!”
Jo Highgate, head teacher at Kingsdown and Ringwold Primary School, said: “Not only is reading beneficial to a child’s academic performance, it’s great fun and can really help with their emotional development.
“Thank you to Dandara and John Boyens Carpentry for their generosity and for allowing us to be a part of this very worthwhile project.”
John Boynes of John Boynes Carpentry in Maidstone built the book hut for the school free of charge. He said: “It was nice to be asked by Dandara to get involved in such a big project and it’s nice to see the finished book hut. I hope the children have as much fun decorating it as we had making it. I Really impressed that Dandara is working with schools to spark the imaginations of local kids.”
