THESE youngsters have chosen the name of a new care home being built close to their school.

Pupils at Redlands Primary School in Redlands Lane, Fareham, were invited by Gracewell Healthcare to find a name for the new care home it is building nearby.

Emmy Illingworth and Rhys Davies bothcame up with the name chosen as the winner – Parker Meadows care home.

Teacher Amelia Cripps said: ‘We had a competition for the whole school and two children independently came up with the same idea.

‘The site was Tom Parker’s Dairy before this, so they used that, and we had a few variations using that idea, but this one was picked as the winner.’

The school is now hoping that when the home opens next spring they will be able to create strong ties with it and make regular visits.

Fareham MP Mark Hoban presented the school with a £500 Waterstone’s voucher on behalf of Gracewell for it to buy new books.
