We have now set up our intergenerational project which we are calling LinkAge.

It aims to improve community cohesion by having a group of teenagers from Dowdales School visiting residents at Staveley House and interview them about their own teenage life.

Then the youngsters will write up the memories, add their own thoughts on life today and we will have a booklet printed to give the residents as a gift at a celebration in November.

Everyone is excited!
