CHILDREN from Blackwell First School were given the task of naming four residents’ lounges in The Lodge at Burcot Grange care home.

The home held a competition asking pupils to come up with the names and also artwork to illustrate their decision.

The winning lounge names were – Halfords (by Evie), Henry Osler (by Olivia), Cadbury (by Harry) and Peacock (by David).

Vicky Osborne, general manager of The Lodge at Burcot Grange, said: “It’s such a treat to have the children’s fantastic artwork on display in our care home lounges.

“The residents have been really engaged with the stories and creativity behind the chosen names and its associated artwork.

“It has certainly sparked some memories and conversations between the schoolchildren and our Burcot Grange residents which is delightful to see.”
