Burnham-On-Sea's Footprints Nursery bridges age gap with project

A Burnham-On-Sea nursery hopes to bridge the age gap between youngsters and pensioners with a new community project.

Children at Burnham-On-Sea's Footprints Nursery in Adam Street are making visits to Frith House, a local care home.

Janet Adams, Nursery Manager, told "Our project is called Across the Generations and involves us taking several of our pre-school children to Frith House and spending the afternoon with some of their residents enjoying activities and afternoon tea."

"We hope this project will encourage the children to enhance their social skills and broaden their knowledge of the world."

"Also, the Frith House residents will regain some of their youth and share their memories and knowledge with us. This project will also help us to improve our community links."
