Claremont Lodge Care Home Welcomes Great Ballard School
At the end of November, the residents of Claremont Lodge Care Home
welcomed some very excited young children from Chichester’s Great Ballard School for an afternoon of arts, crafts and treats.
The local children from the School’s Nursery and Reception were eager to get on the coach to make the five-minute journey to the care home
near Arundel. The residents from the retirement home in Sussex
had a delightful afternoon of puzzles, games and stories followed by a magical performance from the School’s young choir.
The school said; "We all agreed it had been a really special afternoon and it was lovely to overhear some kind comments from the residents. “A very successful afternoon, enjoyed by all,” was one lovely thought. “It was a lovely afternoon; thank you for coming” was another lady’s reflection and our favourite comment was an observation on how well-behaved the children were."
