Visits to Pendleside Hospice

A group of children have been visiting the Living With Dementia group at  Pendleside Hospice. As part of their visits they performed maypole dances and took part in a seaside themed finale staged by Dementia Positive Pendle ,where they danced and sang "Bobby's Girl".  This has been a wonderful experience for the children  which we have been privileged to be involved with.
