It’s all in a name: Lady Boswells pupils lend a helping hand to Care UK

Home news

Children from a local primary school have officially opened the play area that they named at Weald Heights care home.

Students from Lady Boswells C.E. (Aided) Primary School came up with a list of names which have cultural, local or historical reference to them to name the play area at Weald Heights care home in Sevenoaks.

The play area has been named ‘Lullingstone Play Area’, after local landmark, Lullingstone Castle, one of England’s oldest family estates.

As a thank you to those who took part, the Care UK team at Weald Heights welcomed the children to cut the ribbon and officially open the play area.

Maria Covington, home manager at Weald Heights, said: “We were delighted to be joined by the pupils from Lady Boswells as we marked the official opening of the newly named play area. The residents were delighted to spend time with the children, and it was great for them to form intergenerational relationships. We are very grateful to the pupils for coming up with such a fantastic name for the play area, and we look forward to welcoming them again in the future.”

Sharon Saunders, head teacher of Lady Boswells C.E (Aided) Primary School, said: “Our pupils were delighted to have been asked to help in naming the play area at Weald Heights, and we are thrilled that our suggested name has been selected. The children loved visiting the home and chatting to the residents, and we look forward to many more future visits.”
