Pupils’ visit is a de­light for res­i­dents

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

YEAR Seven pupils hand de­liv­ered some Easter eggs to res­i­dents at a care home and learnt about the war while they were there.

Three boys from Ab­bots­field School in Hilling­don vis­ited the Sweet Croft Res­i­den­tial Home in Hilling­don and had a chat with res­i­dents ask­ing them what they did to cel­e­brate Easter when they were a child. Some won­der­ful mem­o­ries were dis­cussed, and the boys had a chance to learn about war days.

Sam Ali­son, man­ager of Sweet Croft said: “The res­i­dents thor­oughly en­joy the boys’ vis­its and look for­ward to them com­ing again. Res­i­dent Ann Machin who is 94 told me she thinks it was mar­vel­lous they came and de­liv­ered Easter Eggs and it bought back mem­o­ries of her child­hood.”

Ab­bots­field School are work­ing with their pupils to build pos­i­tive re­la­tion­ships with the older gen­er­a­tion and build bridges in the com­mu­nity. They will be hold­ing a tea party at Sweet Croft in June to cel­e­brate the Queen’s 90th birth­day.
