Maples children receive correspondence from the King

There was a special delivery for children at Maples Day Nursery in Winchester as they received a special letter from King Charles, having sent the monarch an array of handmade cards to congratulate him on his Coronation back in May.

At the award-winning setting on Hatherley Road, pre-schoolers were delighted to receive a reply from Buckingham Palace, thanking them for their colourful designs and well wishes following the historic ceremony, as well as a card featuring a portrait photograph of King Charles and Queen Camilla on the day, which read;  

“We were deeply touched by your most kind and thoughtful message following our Coronation. We are enormously grateful to everyone who took part in the celebrations, and particularly appreciate that you so generously took the time to write to us on this very special occasion.”

Maples Day Nursery Deputy Manager, Lou Rowe explained;

“We were absolutely thrilled to receive such an exciting letter from the King, and this has inspired some lovely conversations and role play activities in nursery. The children had a fantastic time showcasing their creativity whilst making their cards and this was a brilliant opportunity to develop their writing and communication skills. We are so pleased with the reply and hope that this is a lasting memory for the group.”
