RESIDENTS at a care home in Andover shared pancakes and conversation with a group of local students to mark Shrove Tuesday.

Rothsay Grange Care Home, in Weyhill Road, welcomed pupils from Mark Way School, in Batchelors Barn Road, to enjoy stacks of pancakes in honour of Pancake Day, which falls on Tuesday, February 13.

They enjoyed topping the pancakes, which were prepared by the care home’s chefs, with an assortment of fruits, jams, and sauces.

General manager of Rothsay Grange Care Home, Gemma Hicks, said: “We so enjoyed welcoming the boys and teachers from Mark Way School to the home to share in our pancake tasting and was it great to see that they even got the pan out and tried some tossing as well.

“Residents loved being served their pancakes by the boys who then joined them at their tables to eat their own pancake selections, and they all had a lovely chat while deciding on the merits of each topping – food for thought indeed!

“This is the second time that the group have visited recently and we very much hope that their visits will continue, especially as they were kind enough to do the washing up when they finished – so absolutely the perfect guests!”

A resident at the home said: “It was so nice to see the boys here and enjoying themselves and I really liked listening to them chatting about what they are doing at school. I hope they come again.”
