Whitstable school children get crafty for Harrier Lodge

December 5 2018

 

Local school children have created eye-catching artwork to decorate the marketing suite at Harrier Lodge. 

Students from Whitstable Junior School were invited by Care UK to get creative with a piece of artwork around the theme of ‘who do you care about?’ The artwork is now on display in the marketing suite of Harrier Lodge, on Montpelier Avenue, as the care home begins to take shape. 

The year four children who designed the artworkhad the opportunity to meet the home’s customer relations manager, Theresa Mead, and ask her questions about the new care home. 

The multi-million pound purpose-built care home, which will provide full-time residential, nursing and specialist dementia care for up to 65 older people in Whitstable, is due to open January 2019.

Theresa Mead, customer relations managerfor Harrier Lodge, said: “We were delighted to be able to collaborate with Whitstable Junior School on a lovely art project to brighten up our marketing suite. 

“It was great to welcome the children to see their pictures displayed and we look forward to working with the school on future projects.”   

Mrs Knoupe, headteacher at the school, added: “We were thrilled when Care UK asked us to be part of their exciting new venture here in Whitstable. The children had a great time creating the artwork and it’s fantastic that it is now being displayed for all the community to see.”
