Children from a local primary school have been learning about the city’s heritage to come up with names for the suites at Bickerton House.
Pupils from Sandy Lane Primary School took part in a competition to name the five suites at a new care home, Bickerton House.
The children put their heads together to come up with a list of names that have cultural or historical reference to them and the local area, and these were then whittled down to the top four by the Care UK team.
When the new care home opens, the local-themed suites will be known as known as: ‘Deer’s Antlers Suite’, named after the iconic Bracknell logo; ‘Swinley Forest Suite’, named after the local woodland; ‘Wildmoor Suite’, named after Wildmoor Heath park; and ‘Mill Pond Suite’, after the pond in Mill Park.
Care UK presented the winning children with individual book vouchers to say thank you for all their hard work.
Erika Smith, home manager of Bickerton House, said: “The all-important naming of the suites within the care home is a priority, and we thought this presented an excellent opportunity to work with Sandy Lane Primary School, and to get to know our neighbours a little better.
“The ideas the pupils put forward were all of a very high quality, and we’re really pleased with the chosen four names.”
