The First Minister for Wales joined schoolchildren in Cardiff in a session designing playgrounds.

This week, housebuilder Persimmon Homes engaged with key stakeholders, including Creigiau Primary School, to enhance community spaces at the Cardiff site.

Notable participants included First Minister Mark Drakeford MS, Cardiff West MP Kevin Brennan and Cardiff Council members, Dan De'Ath and Sarah Merry.

The partnership with Creigiau Primary revolved around creating playgrounds for Persimmon's Llanilltern site.

Pupils participated in creative workshops, focusing on 'clayscapes' and water, influenced by Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems.

In connection with the project, Persimmon has created a toolkit for educational use, focusing on sustainable drainage design.

Persimmon East Wales’ managing director, Lee Hawker said: "We're dedicated to crafting sustainable spaces that enrich the local community, and witnessing the children's creativity firsthand was fantastic."

"We eagerly anticipate incorporating the children’s innovative ideas into the development of parks and open spaces within the Parish development in Llanilltern," he continued.

Persimmon Homes' project forms part of a larger scheme involving the construction of more than 1,000 homes and diverse community amenities.
