School visit to Holbeach Meadows

Home Manager Gemma Woodcock invited William Stukeley Primary School to help Holbeach Meadows name their two ground floor suites.  The children were asked to shortlist their favourite ten flower names, which were then put to a vote with the residents.

Plaques were fixed to the doors, ready for the School Council students to visit and unveil them.

The children pulled back the curtains to reveal which of their suggestions had won the resident’s vote – Rose and Cornflower!

Home Manager Gemma said “The children were exceptionally well behaved and the residents thoroughly enjoyed their visit, their smiles said it all!  It was truly heart-warming to see the children talk to and help the residents with their crafts.  Intergenerational therapy brings so many benefits to care home residents and is something I am committed to bringing to Holbeach Meadows busy social calendar.  We donated a book voucher to the school as a thank you for their help with the suite naming and are working with the school on plans for the children to bring their new books to the home, for a shared reading session with the residents.  We are very grateful to the school staff for working with us and look forward to a long-lasting relationship with William Stukeley Primary!”
