Bringing Generations Together in Wrexham

The benefits of inter-generational work are far reaching and with the support of the Wrexham Council Community Inclusion Grant, lots more people are benefiting from great sessions like one recently held in Hightown community centre to celebrate the annual International Older person’s day on the October 1. A recent session also took place in Cylch Meithrin Bro Alun, Gwersyllt in the medium of Welsh and residents from Oak Alyn and Hillbury joined the children who sang a number of songs in Welsh. In addition, Ashgrove Care Home in Gresford invited Marford Little Explorers for a fun morning in the care home which was supported by the local PCSO Officers Lisa and Sue. Tracey Nevitt, Manager of  Marford Little Explorers said, “Oh my life, I cannot thank you enough for your kindness this morning. Observing the interaction between young and old blew us all away!”
