CHILDREN from three primary schools spent a morning at the Acacia Lodge care home in Henley.

Classes from Valley Road and St Mary?s in Henley and Peppard primary chatted with residents of the Quebec Road home for National Care Home Open Day.

The St Mary?s students showed off sculptures of the pensioners? faces which they had made in their art classes.

Peppard pupils entered cakes into a baking competition which was judged by Henley Mayor Lorraine Hillier, Lower Shiplake resident Olive Bond, Invesco Perpetual fund manager William Lam and Lady Catherine Stewart, whose father lives in Henley. The winner was a cake in the shape of a hedgehog which included chocolate buttons for spines.

It was made by eight-year-old Louie Reynolds, who was presented with a medal and a cookie-making kit.

Aliya Lee, 11, who made miniature sponge cakes with rainbow-coloured icing, was the runner-up and was given some ice lolly moulds. Councillor Hiller said: ?It was a lovely morning ? this is definitely one of the advantages of being Mayor.

?I?ve enjoyed a little piece of every cake that was here and they were all really well made. The pupils were very excited to be here and I was impressed with how well-behaved and polite they are.?
