Pupils from St. Thomas Cantilupe Primary School took part in an Easter card competition judged by residents at Hampton Grange and Gwen Walford Nursing Homes in Hereford.

All pupils entered the competition, crafting their creations from tissue, card, felt and crayons, and penning personal messages inside for individual residents. The winners received a prized chocolate Easter egg each, presented in a school assembly during the summer term.  
The Home Manager, Louise Craddock said:
“The Easter Card Competition is a firm favourite on the calendar! Our residents were honoured to receive personal messages from the children and admired their creativity – it was a tough decision choosing the winners! Linking the different generations has such a positive effect on the children and the residents and we look forward to holding another competition later on in the year for Christmas!”
Operated by Rotherwood Healthcare, Hampton Grange provides Nursing and Dementia Care, while Gwen Walford offers Residential and Nursing Care in the heart of Hereford. For more information visit
