Proud mum Katie Sanders said: “Our two boys are the only children on the site at the moment and as soon as Andy knew Harry had an interest in building, diggers and machines etc he’s gone the extra mile to make him feel special – including giving him a plan of our house with a clipboard which he could put his own measurements and drawings on.

“Harry even tells Andy when he thinks something’s wrong or not finished!

“Andy has dealt with every query, problem and request efficiently and professionally. Harry couldn’t wait to tell everyone Bengeworth CE Academy about sitting in a big crane on site.

“Thanks to Cameron we have one very happy little boy,” she added.
