Our growing youth action team (YATs) in Grimsbury, Banbury have kept busy this summer working alongside the residents at Ridings Care Home to produce a beautiful mosaic, which will be presented at Grimsbury Community Centre.
Over the past few months the YATs at Grimsbury have formed a strong relationship with Ridings Care Home, working with Claire and Zoe who are the home's activities coordinators. This relationship has allowed us to go into the home and work with older generations of the Grimsbury community. Together we created an intergenerational mosaic, which colourfully advertises Grimsbury as a great community to be a part of.
Working alongside a skillful mosaic artist, Glyn Rowlands, the young people and the residents learnt many mosaic skills whilst wearing some very dashing goggles to keep them safe!
Our project is due to be printed in the Banbury Guardian towards the end of August 2015 so keep your eyes peeled for this article.
