A residential care home in north Norfolk is launching two innovative projects to bring people together across the community.
Broadacres in Barton Turf has linked up with Worstead Primary School to bring children to the home to take part in three activities with residents – construction, arts and crafts and story time.
The home also plans to work with the school and Worstead village hall to run a community café with the children.
Teresa Hope, activities co-ordinator at Broadacres, said: 'The children will design the menu and the ideas for food to serve to our residents and other local people, with help from our catering team.'
The idea has captured the inspiration of the village and nearby businesses.
Worstead village hall will host the café for six months, and businesses have contributed materials to support the initiative.
The first community café will be on Monday, March 5, 10-11.30am, at Worstead village hall.
