Millom Infants School

Posted on 03/04/2019

You may have seen ‘Old Peoples Home for 4 year-olds’ on TV on Channel 4 recently, where a retirement village invited a class of local infant school children to come to visit with the residents as the government and a number of health professionals now believe that the young and the very old can actually learn from each other and in some cases can actually enhance their health & well-being.

As our own little harmless experiment, we invited children from Millom Infants School to come to St Georges to read their storybooks to any of the willing residents. Discussions we have now had with our residents regarding this, prior and during the visits, have all been complimentary and they looking forward to the children visiting now each week, our ladies and gents delegated themselves for this activity and we believe it is proving to be a positive experience for all.
