Tilsley House, in Clarence Road South, opened its doors to students from Hans Price Academy during its big lunch event.

The idea of the day was to encourage interaction between elderly people living at the home, young people from around Weston, and other people from the town.

The home’s director Rizwan Govindji said the lunch was a way to make the home a ‘valuable member’ of the wider community.

He said the home also works with Weston College students and St Paul’s Church to immerse itself in the community.
