It’s never too young to start thinking about the construction industry

Jackson’s site team at St. Clements Way recently had a visit from a young construction enthusiast.

Three year old, Fletcher has a passion for all things construction and frequently spent time watching Jackson work in his home town, Greenhithe, over the last few months.

Rebecca Devonport, Fletchers’ mother said: “The past year has been the best for him. In the early days when lots of drilling was taking place, the site team would even come and give him ear plugs if they could see us standing to watch near an area of noise.”

Jackson’s Public Liaison Officer, Carole Jones said: “We organised for Fletcher to visit the site with his parents so he could have an opportunity to meet the team and get a closer look at the plant machinery he enjoys.”

The team also provided Fletcher with his own hard hat, high-vis jacket and excavator toys to start his training.

Rebecca Devonport continued: “Inviting Fletcher along was kind enough but to spoil him with gifts went above and beyond. From the moment we walked through the gate and Matt (Jackson’s Site Agent) greeted him by name, Fletcher was overwhelmed.”

The St Clements Way project included increasing the size and capacity of the London Road/St Clements Way roundabout in Greenhithe, and the provision of new bus lanes in each direction between the London Road and Crossways Boulevard roundabouts.
