Bluebirds and Bluebells Café

In September, Avery Park Care Home in Kettering challenged local pupils from Brambleside Primary School in Kettering to help name the newly opened café on their memory floor. With 500 amazing (and some very funny) entries submitted from pupils aged 7-11 years, it was Emily Henderson’s suggestion of ‘Bluebirds and Bluebells’ that got the seal of approval from Avery Park.

Winner Emily, Callum and Kyan who were awarded 2nd and 3rd place respectively, were invited to officially open the café on 17th September and received prizes for their brilliant efforts, including a mini version of the name plaque. Speaking of the newly named café, resident, Michael Stroud, mentioned, “I really enjoyed the opening ceremony; it was a lovely event. The name Bluebells and Bluebirds is wonderful.
