We got creative with our Easter celebrations, decorating colourful hats. The children from our local primary school came to join us too, showing off the bonnets they had made!

Over the years, we have built up a wonderful relationship with Mayplace Primary School, and the children often come and visit us here at Groveland Park, whether it’s to sing to the residents, to show off their amazing work or just to have a little chat. We take great pleasure in visiting the school too, with invitations to their assemblies and shows.

The residents really do love being part of the audience when we visit the school, and it has had a marvellous impact on them, giving them a sense of purpose as the children relate to them without judgement. The children also greatly benefit from the undivided attention of people who enjoy spending time listening to them and sharing stories.

As always, we’re already looking forward to their next visit!
