Young meet old at Blenheim Court
IT was a generation game with a difference when elderly residents joined forces with primary school pupils to celebrate Older Peoples Day.
Youngsters from Flanderwell Primary School paid a visit to Blenheim Court residential complex where they performed a hip hop dance routine and joined in the armchair exercise routines with residents.
Pupils enjoyed sharing the older people's stories about growing up during the Second World War and looked at memorabilia from their childhood.
The aim of the event was to help break stereotypes and bridge the generation gap and as a result of the day's success, the children will be returning to Blenheim Court to play carpet bowls.
A spokeswoman for Blenheim Court said: “It was a very interactive morning enjoyed by all.”
