Debbie, Teacher at The Firs Lower School

''I am a teacher from a local school who was regularly taking our year 4 classes of children to visit the elderly residents at this care home before lockdown.

The activities were organised by the very enthusiastic and friendly activities co-ordinator Lu Lawrence who is fantastic!

The care home itself is beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and offers a wide range of facilities and experiences for all its guests.

All the staff are very amiable and nothing is too much trouble. The residents appear very happy and have a good rapport with all the staff.

The children in our school were sad when our visits had to be suspended due to the coronavirus but we are looking forward to spending more happy times there when all this is over.

Meanwhile, the children have made cards for the residents and we have received happy photos of them receiving them.

Our experience of this care home has been nothing but positive and welcoming, even with a large group of lively but lovely children.''
