Students from a secondary school and children from a day nursery have been busy bringing smiles to the faces of elderly people.
Residents living at Roebuck Nursing Home in Stevenage have enjoyed a musical production of Grease, performed by sixth form students from The Nobel School.
The nursing home is also working closely with Twizzle Tops Day Nursery in Stevenage, with children aged three to five visiting the home weekly and participating in activities with the residents.
Resident Doreen Maslin said: “The young people visiting the home really put smiles on people’s faces. I look forward to their visits.”
Home manager Lisa-Marie Donovan said: “The home is working hard on new projects to bring the elderly and young together.
