As a fifth-generation family business, we love to get involved with our neighbours, local schools and suppliers to manage our impact, build trust and raise standards.
From inspiring youngsters to learn about the built environment to providing life changing opportunities to build their careers in our company through our Stepping Stones and Apprenticeship Programmes.
Advising for the future
We are active members of the ‘Skills Advisory Panel’ at Shrewsbury Colleges Group, lending our expertise to support the T Level in Design, Surveying, and Planning for Construction. The panel convenes three times a year to take a holistic approach to the evolving landscape of trades and technology within the construction industry.
By collaborating closely with the Shrewsbury Colleges Group, we aim to provide valuable company insights and guidance that will shape the future of education and training in the industry, ensuring that the next generation of construction professionals is well-prepared for the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.
Building a school garden
Over the summer, we built a school garden project at St Mary’s Bluecoat Primary School in Bridgnorth - and just in time for the start of the new term!
Our team worked hard to cut back hedges and trees, carve out pathways, build sheds and install the features designed by the school’s Eco Club. We hope that the children love it as much as we do!
Time capsule project
As part of our work on a development to build 27 affordable homes for the Wrekin Housing Group, we were joined by school children and members of the local community in Prees to bury a time capsule.
Children were invited to create artwork to showcase life in Shropshire in 2023 and play their part in local history. The winning entries were added to the time capsule alongside a range of items including a King's Coronation coin, a Barbie doll, Lioness' Top Trumps and a copy of the Shropshire Star to be dug up by future residents.
The time capsule was buried at the heart of the development to leave a legacy for future generations.
Developing new skills with LEGO
School children from across Telford and Wrekin came together at AFC Telford for the final of the LEGO® League Explore programme 2023.
Aimed at students aged six to nine years old, the programme introduces scientific challenges to help develop new skills and inspire a love of learning while having lots of fun with Lego.
Inspiring young minds
Following an appeal by St Anthony’s Catholic Primary Academy in Wolverhampton to help their pupils explore different career paths, Morris Property were delighted to help when it came to finding out about the construction industry.
We donated everything from hard hats, high-vis vests, children’s wheel barrows, tarpaulins, paint brushes, rollers and painting trays to red and white bunting and traffic cones, reflecting how a construction site looks and feels for the youngsters.
Classes in construction
Nursery children and teachers at Redhill Primary School in Telford visited the site of their new state-of-the-art nursery to see the build taking shape.
The £1.4 million project provides outstanding facilities for the children who are starting their academic life at Redhill Primary Academy, which is part of the Thomas Telford Multi Academy Trust.
