Wellington Vale’s competition is open to everyone in the community, whether they are connected to the care home or not.

Helen Dunning, home admission advisor for Wellington Vale, said: ‘We would love to see how many of our community really know their local landmarks as well as Hop-A-Long - good luck!’

Landmark suggestions should be added as a comment on the Facebook post, and anybody that guesses all the locations correctly will be put in a draw.

Chocolate Easter eggs will be given as prizes to ten winners selected at random from the draw.

The competition ends at midnight on Saturday, April 3 – just in time for Easter.

Winners will be announced on the afternoon of Easter Sunday on the care home’s Facebook page, which can be visited at

Details of the competition will also be posted on this page.

Chocolate Easter eggs can be collected by winners from Wellington Vale on Easter Monday.
