A CARE home and school brought generations together for a summer day of fun last month.

Pupils from Farleigh School in Red Rice, joined residents from Harrier Grange care home in a fairground extravaganza with games such as splat-the-rat and hook-a-duck on June 29.

Youngsters were also paired up with residents for garden games such as boules, giant snakes and ladders and garden croquet.

Harrier Grange care home director Kay Kelly said: “The residents, children, teachers and staff have all thoroughly enjoyed the Summer Fun Day and it was wonderful to see the residents playing games alongside the pupils from Farleigh School and striking up lovely relationships.

“Residents enjoyed joining in with the children’s games and teaching them some of the rules to the more traditional games that the children didn’t know.

“We know that whenever we have schools in to visit there is always a really positive impact on our residents and the pupils have lots of fun too.”
