EASTER came early for pupils at Two Village Primary School as they joined residents at Don Thomson Care Home to paint eggs and decorate bonnets and biscuits.

The fun-filled morning of Easter-themed activities was held on Wednesday and organised by Sanctuary Group, which runs the Dovercourt care home.

Manager Jan Watkins said: “Our residents love making themed arts and crafts. It reminds them of a time when they enjoyed doing this with their own children and grandchildren.”
