A north Norfolk primary school has delivered a festive surprise to "hero" care workers ahead of Christmas.
Staff at The Manor House care home in North Walsham, were "delighted" to receive a visit from two children from Colby Primary School, who came bearing gifts.
The children delivered wrapped presents and lots of personalised Christmas cards for the residents of the home to enjoy.
A card signed by the headteacher, Christine Mead, read: “Children at Colby School would like to thank you for your service at this difficult time.
"We hope you enjoy the chocolate treats. The children called you heroes so the chocolate seemed appropriate. Wishing you a wonderful Christmas.”
