Witney school children get crafty for Millers Grange

Home news

 

Local school children have created eye-catching artwork to decorate the hoardings at Millers Grange. 

Students from Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Primary 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 on the hoardings surrounding Miller’s Grange, as the care home begins to take shape. 

The Year Two children who designed the artwork visited the site to see their drawings up on display, with the help of construction partners, Lawrence Baker. 

The multi-million pound purpose-built care home, which will provide full time residential, nursing and specialist dementia care for up to 52 older people in Witney, is due to open in March 2019.

Gary Renton, construction project manager for Care UK, said: “We were delighted to be able to collaborate with Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Primary School on a lovely art project to brighten up our hoardings. 

“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 Browne, Year Two Teacher at the school, added: “We were thrilled when Care UK asked us to be part of their exciting new venture here in Witney. The children had a great time creating the artwork and love seeing it displayed for all the community to see.”
