Theatre Shed came up with a lovely idea for Silver Sunday – their young members needed help making costumes and puppets for their winter show of A Muppet Christmas Carol so why not ask the older generation with all their skills to give them and hand?
The result was a wonderful day of arts, craft, and fun plus a singalong and lots of tea and cake! Both generations had a wonderful time and made some fantastic puppets and the day was a huge success. Chesham Connect were very happy to contribute a grant to this great community project.
Silver Sunday is a special day in the national calendar when everyone can come together to celebrate older people: a day in the nation’s hearts where older people feel valued and are given new opportunities to get out of the house, keep their minds and bodies active, learn new skills, make new friends and connect with the communities and generations around them. – silversunday.org.uk
