A local primary school has named the suites at Deewater Grange
Pupils from Dee Banks Primary School took part in a competition to name the four suites at Care UK’s new care home, Deewater Grange.
The children put their heads together to come up with a list of names that have cultural or historical significance to them and the local area.
When the care home opens in winter 2019, the suites will be known as: the ‘Kingfisher Suite,’ the ‘Swan Suite,’ the ‘Mallard Suite,’ and the ‘Cygnet Suite’, which were inspired by a nature theme suggested by the local pupils.
Care UK has presented the school with £250 towards new play equipment to say thank you for the pupils’ hard work.
Sally Cooper, home manager at Deewater Grange, said: “As we gear up to welcome the first residents to the home later this year, the all-important naming of the suites within the care home is a key consideration – and this presented an excellent opportunity to work with Dee Banks Primary School.
“The ideas the pupils put forward were all of a very high standard, and we’re really pleased with the four final names.”
Erica Flynn, teacher at Dee Banks Primary School, added: “We were thrilled when Care UK asked to work with us on this exciting new venture here in Chester. The children had a great time researching the local area to help them come up with four suite names.”
