The sessions have become popular and have also incorporated attendance by some individuals from the local Care Home.

Links have been made by Sue with the local school, namely Rhydypenau Primary.

On Tuesday, 10th November, 2015 a group of pupils visited the library to provide musical entertainment and interaction. They were accompanied by their Music teacher and enthusiast Larry Williams.

The pupils provided a a number of musical items incorporating varied instruments such as piano, saxophone and flute.

The older people thoroughly enjoyed the presentations. Sue finished the morning off by leading the pupils and older people through a number of songs from the Goldies songbook, including the favourite Delilah.    

Arrangements are being made for the older people to visit Rhydypenau Primary School in the near future to participate in an intergenerational event.
