Buds and Blooms Intergenerational Groups Community Interest Company - Children and young people's activities

What we do

I have been running Buds and Blooms (not for profit) intergenerational groups in care homes in Barry and Penarth since September 2018. The residents love seeing the children and it’s lovely watching the friendships that have been built. Unfortunately this has had to stop due to the current situation. As a result the residents are missing the children and cannot have their relatives and friends visit either.  
I have therefore decided to run online sessions of Buds and Blooms via zoom. They are usually for pre school children but any age is welcome as the schools are closed. Sessions consist of singing, signing and stories with lots of colourful props. A different theme is planned every month and free resource packs with lots of props and craft activities are provided for anyone who participates.
New and old members (who now may usually be in nursery or school) are welcome to join us. You are welcome to try a session with no obligation to re attend. 

Who do we support

The sessions are usually for pre school children but school aged children are welcome as the schools are closed.

 Opening times

We currently have two sessions a week.  One on a ‪Monday morning at 9.30 am and the other on a ‪Thursday afternoon at 1.45 pm for approximately 40 minutes.

Sessions are currently free of charge as I am conscious that it’s a difficult time for families financially.  If you would like to attend please contact me and I’ll send you all the details for setting up zoom and signing into the sessions.
