Following two years of minimal contact with the outside world, you will no doubt be able to understand our joy at being able to welcome visitors back into our home.
We have welcomed many friendly faces into Layston Grove since the restrictions were lifted, singers, animals, even a milliner and this week we were happy to welcome in a group of students from the local college.
They were such delightful company, they asked lots of questions and we spent a lovely afternoon getting to know each other. We discussed our experiences of growing up and laughed at the vast differences. They were so interested to hear our stories and us theirs. It is incredible to conceive of such change in such a relatively short span of history. We could have chatted to them for days.
It isn’t often that such different generations get to just sit down and chat, to learn from one another and it was really very special to be given the opportunity to do so.
