Children and care home residents get crafty

Residents at Pelsall Hall Care Home have been enjoying some craft sessions with pupils from St Michael’s School  as part of a growing community project.

The youngsters in years 3 and 4 are going to the hall in Paradise Lane weekly to work together on different arts projects.

The groups, whose ages span from seven to 94, have already made Mother’s day gifts, painted birdhouses and bird feeders and made Easter treats.

Ros Hutchinson, headteacher from St Michael’s School, said: “The children enjoy their craft sessions at Pelsall Hall and the pupils and staff always feel very welcome.”

Future projects include creating a wishing tree for residents and children to record their wishes, windmills for World Peace Day in September, making and painting animal habitats for the new Woodland Garden that is being created this summer at Pelsall Hall.

    This strikes me as an excellent initiative. It’s great that the outside world is not only making it into Pelsall Hall, but that it’s lively children. Must be a real dose of colour, stimulation and energy for the residents. So many good things about it really.
