Care home boarded by young buccaneers on pirate day
A CREW of primary school pirates boarded a Skelmersdale care home to teach residents about buccaneering.
The band of brigands from Delph Side Primary School took books, pictures and treasure maps to show those living at Aaron Crest Care Home, on Tanhouse Road.
They dressed in swashbuckling costumes, complete with eye patches and hats, as they entertained residents with their tales from the high seas.
The visit was part of International Talk Like A Pirate Day, when children around the world share a “Yo Ho Ho” and “Ahoy” in celebration of their favourite fictional pirates.
Adrienne Ratcliffe, home manager at Aaron Crest Care Home, said: “The children looked wonderful in their pirate costumes.
“The residents were so happy to see them and they enjoyed an afternoon of reading books and treasure maps together.”
