A motion in Scottish Parliament
Published on Sep 7, 2017
Debate on the subject of—
S5M-06963 Christine Grahame: Generations Working Together—That the Parliament notes
the innovative collaboration between Newbyres Village and Newbyres Nursery in Gorebridge,
where children visit older residents on a weekly basis; considers that this is to the mutual benefit of
the children and the older residents; understands that, on these visits, the children paint with the
residents, are told stories, plant sunflowers, are taught nursery rhymes and play hilarious games,
which assist hand and eye co-ordination of both young and old; congratulates the charity,
Generations Working Together, and Newbyres Village and Newbyres Nursery, on supporting this
initiative, and notes the recommendations for similar projects elsewhere in Scotland.
