Pupils who won a Halloween story and poetry writing competition run by a care home in Bourne picked up their prizes this week.

Three pupils from Bourne Westfield Primary Academy visited Cedars Care Home in Church Walk on Monday to pick up book tokens worth £15 each.

Cedars matron Helen Brewster said: “There were some fantastic entries in the competition and it was a pleasure to read them. The winners really deserved their prizes.

“Holding the competition was a lovely way of the home being involved with the local community.

“I would like to thank the school for its help in running this with us.”

Cedars has regular story and poetry reading afternoons, which were used to listen to the entries submitted by the school children before judging.
