Intergenerational group smiling at Christmas

Our Older Adults’ Wellbeing Group joined with Chesham Museum last week for a festive intergenerational singing group.

Parents and toddlers joined our members at Sun House on 1st December. The aim of the session was to bring different generations together to share in festive cheer and traditions.

Intergenerational group interacting at christmas

Everyone enjoyed a mix of children’s songs, which included lots of actions, traditional carols and Christmas songs. There was also a reading of the book T’was the Night Before Christmas and a very jingly version of Jingle Bells at the end!

Chesham Museum shared some of the history behind carol singing, information about when Cromwell banned Christmas and the history of the singing of Silent Night on Christmas Eve during the First World War.

After the singing, we all enjoyed Christmas biscuits together and spent time talking and playing. Members of the Older Adults’ Wellbeing Group said:

I loved the singing, dancing and interaction with the children.

People were inspired to join in.
