Pupils join care home residents for egg hunt

Posted on 27 April 2011

Residents paying for care at a home in Bromsgrove enjoyed some fun Easter activities with pupils from a local school.

Pupils at Blackwell First School took part in an Easter egg hunt at the Burcot Grange Residential Home on Easter Monday, reports the Bromsgrove Advertiser.

Additionally, Susan Oakes, from Beacon Farm, brought along some typical spring animals including lambs and chickens, for the children and residents paying for care to play with.

Jan Williams, activity co-ordinator at the care home, told the newspaper that Burcot Grange and Blackwell First School has interacted a lot in the past.

"This has allowed the children and residents to build up a friendly relationship which has allowed two generations to interact and the benefits to us all has been tremendous," she explained.

The lambs and chickens are not the only unlikely visitors to a care home recently, with 21-year-old donkey Molly stopping by The Laurels in Winsford for an animal therapy session.
