AN EGGSTRA special invitation was sent to care home residents for a Runcorn school’s Easter assembly.
Residents from Simonsfield Care Home, on Boston Avenue, were invited to view the school’s display of hand decorated Easter eggs.
They had been created by pupils aged five to ten years old at The Grange Academy, on Latham Avenue, for a school competition.
The school invited the elderly residents to visit following the care home’s appeal for Easter eggs.
More than a dozen of the chocolate treats were presented to residents at the assembly.
Residents at a care home in Plymouth say that regular visits from pupils of nearby St Budeaux Foundation School are ‘a breath of fresh air.’
The Year 4 pupils come to see their older friends at Freshfields care home as part of the Archie Project, a scheme that links local schools with people with dementia.
Freshfields’ activities co-ordinator Paul Hutt said: “This is the fourth year that St Budeaux children have been coming here and our residents just love their visits.
“They sit side by side and enjoy a whole different variety of activities when they come here.
“On their most recent visit they did seasonal arts and crafts activities.”
