Pupils from West Witney Primary School took part in a competition to name the three suites at Millers Grange.
The children put their heads together to come up with a list of names that have cultural or historical reference to them and the local area, and these were then whittled down to the top three by the Care UK team.
When Millers Grange opens in spring 2019,the suites will be known as: the ‘Loom Suite,’ the ‘Yarn Suite,’ and the ‘Bobbin Suite’, tying in with the history around the home’s name. The home name, Millers Grange, and the chosen suite names, reflect the importance of the cloth weaving industry which has been synonymous with the area for more than 900 years – and played an important role in the development of the town.
Care UK presented the school with book tokens to say thank you for all their hard work.
Daniel Turner-Naylor, regional director at Care UK, said: “As we gear up to welcome the first residents to the home next year, the all-important naming of the suites within the care home is a priority. Thispresented an excellent opportunity to work with West Witney Primary School.
“The ideas the pupils put forward were all of a very high quality, and we’re really pleased with the chosen three names.”
Mrs Alexandra Sloan, deputy headteacher at the school, added: “We were thrilled when Care UK asked to work with us on this exciting new venture here in Witney. The children had a great time researching the local history to help them come up with three suite names.”
