Learning and play bring generations together

Braemar Lodge residents enjoyed a morning of fun with visitors a fraction of their ages.

Our Salisbury home hosted the intergenerational visit from five children aged just 18 months to five years. It was part of a new tie-up with Imagine This, a play-based learning group that arranges hands-on workshops.

Themed on a teddy bears’ picnic, the visit featured games, songs, decorative artwork, storytelling and banana chocolate sandwich-making.

It was so successful, the group will be returning to Braemar Lodge for regular get-togethers during 2020.

Residents at the home were full of praise after the visit.

Trish Stadward said: “What a fascinating thing to watch as the children got involved with the activities set out for them. I would like to get to know the children when they visit again as it was most interesting.”

Barbara Ryrie said: “It was a time to share a fun hour with small children and we are looking forward to many more teddy bears picnics together.”

Betty Winter said: “What fun we had joining in together to do the Hokey Cokey song. It was great fun and I would love them to come back soon.”
