Sharing some golden memories

A NEW voicebank project has been set up to record interviews between youngsters and the elderly residents of a Weston care home.

Pupils from Ashbrooke House School in Ellenborough Park North visited Tilsley House care home in Clarence Park South to ask residents what their childhood was like.

The interviews were recorded with the aim of sending them to other schools so children from across Weston can listen to them and learn about history through the residents’ experiences.

Tilsley House director Rizwan Govindji said: “Not only would this add richness to the school curriculum, it would also help break down barriers between young people and the elderly in society.”

In future, residents will visit the school to find out what childhood is like for youngsters today.
