A new care home had some novel decorators - the children from Sidcup primary schools.

The pupils from Longlands, Woodside Road, and Orchard, Oxford Road, came up with some eye-catching artwork on themes of caring and safety to decorate hoardings outside a new home being built by Care UK in Frognal Avenue.

Gary Renton, for Care UK, said: “We look forward to working with the school on future projects.”

Paul Evans, contract manager at constructors Castleoak, added: “They’ve done a fantastic job and we’re really pleased with the site’s new look.”

Sam Johnson, Year 4 teacher at Orchard, said: “The children had a great time creating the artwork and sharing the special people they care about.

“They love seeing their work displayed for the community to see.”

The multi-million pound home will provide full time residential, nursing and specialist dementia care for up to 80 older people in Sidcup from 2019.
