A SOUTH Derbyshire school once again welcomed members of the community to share in the Christmas festivities.
The Pingle School’s annual Christmas party for the elderly saw the Bus Park Café, run by the South Derbyshire Forum, joining Year 11 students in the festive cheer.
The Bus Park Café provides meals but also organised trips and activities for the people that attend.
Cathy Fairley, head of PSHE, told The Mail: “It is wonderful to have the older generation of Swadlincote in school spending time with the pupils.
“It is charming to see the young people serving drinks and sitting chatting with the visitors. We hope the cards and gifts presented will encourage the elderly in our community to know that young people do care.”
