Children and elderly come together to celebrate harvest
Published on 18/10/2012

Children from a school in Hemsworth helped to celebrate the annual harvest festival traditional with elderly local residents.

The Hemsworth and South Helmsall Express reports how the pupils from St Helens Junior and Infant School visited individuals living at Ashfield House residential home.

Pensioner Grace Freeman commented that "hearing the children sing was beautiful" and the event was "thoroughly enjoyed" by all.

As well as performing for the residents, the pupils took part in a prize draw that featured three fresh fruit and vegetable hampers that were in-keeping with the harvest theme.

They were also taught to play bingo with the Ashfield residents and Wakefield and District Housing's tenant involvement officer Jane Gwilliam noted that it is "great to see two generations come together celebrate the harvest season".

Teacher at St Helens Mr Baird said the children were keen to perform with the residents and enjoy being able to share the harvest festivity with the local community.
