Egg-stra special chicks return to Greenan Manor for Easter

An Ayr care home that asked local children to help residents relocate their pebble chicks in time for Easter has had all but eight returned to the home.

Last week, Greenan Manor, operated by leading care home provider Meallmore Ltd, hid 20 painted pebbles in parks around Alloway and enlisted the help of primary school pupils in the area to find them. Many children returned a painted chick to Greenan Manor Care Home in Doonfoot over the Easter weekend and received a chocolate egg prize for their hard work.

Greenan Manor Care Home Manager, Elaine Hughes, said: "The chick hunt was an ‘egg-cellent’ success and the residents loved seeing the children’s cheerful faces coming up the drive, pebble in hand, over the weekend. The locals really seemed to enjoy the exercise, commenting that it was a great way to get their kids into the Easter spirit.”

“We’re still missing eight bright yellow chick pebbles and we’d love to see them returned. We suspect they may have heard the call of our most famous poet and could be near Burns Cottage and the Burns Centre.”

The painted chicks can be returned to the care home reception and swapped for one of the remaining Easter egg prizes.
