Intergenerational Event – Fairwater

Posted Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012

You are invited to a celebration event in Fairwater Leisure Centre at 1.30pm on Monday October 1st to enjoy the creative results of a recent intergenerational project.

In July, People Around Here worked with Peter Lea Primary School and Ysgol Gyfun Gymraeg Plasmawr to connect local older people with school pupils in a week of storytelling, songwriting, drama and art.

This project was funded by Cardiff West Neighbourhood Management and we hope it will act as a springboard to get intergenerational projects up and running in every school in Cardiff West.

Please join us to celebrate age on the ‘International Day of Older People’ and find out more about what you can do to engage with older people in your area.

There will be live music performances, premiere showings of two short films, and art presentations – all of which will come from the young people and older volunteers together.

Please see attached poster and a letter of invitation from Peter Lea Primary School on behalf of everyone involved.

If you are an organisation working with older people in Cardiff, and you would like to have a stall at the event, please contact Debbie at Fairwater Leisure Centre ASAP. (DTurner@cardiff.gov.uk)
