A care home has set up their own toddler group sessions in a bid to mix the generations.

Bupa Hill House in Elstree welcomes young children from Tots and Scholars Nursery every month.

They engage in a range of activities including garden parties, arts and crafts, discos and seasonal concerts.

Staff at Hill House say they have seen the positive impact that the visits are having on both the residents and the children, who have now formed a special bond.

General manager, Ben Domah, said: "These sessions are a wonderful opportunity to bring the generations together. Being around little ones brings so much joy to everyone at the home, and we are always looking to do more activities like this."

The care home also hosted a Summer Fete where the little ones performed a song and dance for the residents to enjoy.

Mayor of Hertsmere, Cllr Alan Plancey and his wife Miriam, presented a certificate of appreciation on behalf of Hill House to the nursery as a token of their thanks.
