We have been informed that a couple of our children have been playing in the old ‘Nut Factory’ off Hawthorne Road/Walker Drive. There was a serious incident there on Saturday when a child fell through the roof and is seriously ill in hospital. The building is derelict and contains asbestos. Please make your children aware that playing in this derelict factory is extremely dangerous and is not allowed.
As you are already aware, some of our children were concerned when a man approached them on Friday evening in the same area. The children reported this and consequently it is our Safeguarding duty to take all reports seriously and to inform you. As the day has progressed we have found that the incident turned out to be innocent but we praise the children for their correct behaviour.
