Old People’s Home Visit

We have set up a community project nearly 2 years ago to visit a local old peoples home. We feel the experiences for both children and adults will be invaluable.

The children who are aged 3 and above go in small group of 8 with 2 staff members every week for 1 hour and play games and have lots of fun at the home.
