Home Press Releases Teddy bears picnic brings generations together
A TEDDY bears picnic brought the generations together – with school pupils and care home residents sharing the fun.
Children from Blacklow Brow Primary School were visiting elderly residents at Aaron Grange Care Home, both in Huyton, Merseyside, ahead of the summer holiday.
The youngsters brought their favourite teddy bears to meet residents and put on a performance, singing nursery rhymes and songs such as “In My Liverpool Home”.
Taking advantage of the sunny weather, staff at the care home arranged a picnic for the visitors and residents to share in the gardens.
Sarah Davies, home manager at Aaron Grange Care Home, on Blacklow Brow, said: “The residents were overjoyed to see the children with their favourite friends.
“They sang some really beautiful songs that the residents were able to join in with and sing-along.
“The children and residents sang together with real enthusiasm and brought happiness to each other, which was lovely to see, as well as tucking into some picnic food. Everyone had a lovely time.
“The residents are looking forward to the next visit from the children when they return back to school after the summer holidays.”
