New old friends
Grandchildren are always so happy to spend time with their loving grandparents. It's a precious and wonderful relationship that can make memories that will last a lifetime. For some people, it just isn't possible to have a proper relationship with their "real" grandparents or grandchildren. That doesn't mean that you can't have a relationship with a grandparent figure. That also doesn't mean that you can't have the opportunity to spend time with children at the free Intergenerational Playgroup.
Cura In-Home Care is hosting a morning tea to help connect the youngsters with older people who are missing out on having a little bit of fun with toddlers. It has been proven before that it is very beneficial for both children and seniors to spend time together under the watchful eye of their parents and carers.
At this morning tea, there will be fun and safe activities that every generation can get involved in. This includes storytelling, singing songs and playing some games. There will also be food and drink of course. There are multiple chances to spend some time together, as well as painting, and just chatting and getting to know one another.
You do have to be fully vaccinated for this, and you have to be aware that you will be required to wear masks for the whole time whilst at the event to protect those that are the most vulnerable. This incredibly valuable event is free. It is on Thursday, 19th of May, between 10am and 12pm at the Victoria Park Community Centre. Make sure to register your children before you go to ensure that you don't miss out.
