BBC films Kingswood with local school

Kingswood Lodge Care Home was the subject of a fabulous on-air feature and mini-film by BBC Gloucestershire, documenting the wonderful friendship they have struck up with their local primary school.

The relationship has brought much pleasure to residents, who have loved playing and chatting with the children in the home.

As resident Fran, 90 years old, said: “It livens your spirit because they’re always doing something and it takes your mind off other things.”

Home Manager Jana added: "It was beautiful to observe the friendship between the two generations. It is so natural and beneficial to both."
