Longlands Primary School returned to site to see how the development was coming along. Parkway arranged for a time capsule to be made for the school to fill with things that are special to them which was then buried within the site. The local press were eager to cover this and you can see the article below.
On Monday 29 January 2018, Parkway Construction welcomed a class from a local school to visit their new development, Link 9, in Bicester. The year 3 group of students at Longfrields Primary School are currently studying rocks and construction so they were eager to come along and have a look at what Parkway do.

Longfields Primary School
'The year 3 children at Longfields Primary School want to say a huge thank you to Parkway Construction for not only allowing us to visit your Link 9 project but also for welcoming us in such a wonderful way. You made our topics of rocks and construction completely come to life and helped us understand in much greater detail all that we had been learning. The fact you taught us the importance of site safety by arranging for us to wear special clothing made us feel like real site workers. Seeing the bulldozers, diggers and cranes at work was amazing and letting us scramble around the rock ‘mountain’ was a treat. Most of all thank you for answering so many of our tricky questions which has really helped our understanding. All of you created an unforgettable experience and have inspired dozer drivers, project managers and building designers of the future!
We are now all excited to see the completed warehouse project and are hoping our models will be just as good.'
