Get your inventing hats on …

After our first session with a Leicestershire extra care scheme and local primary school the feedback we got was fantastic and St. Mary’s residents have been invited along to the school to celebrate their work together. The bonds between project buddies was already strong after session one and everybody was looking forward to meeting up again.

In session two we set about trying to invent a new food product. As usual there were no boundaries or limits to imagination and the group were soon inventing new ideas from ice cream that never melts, to Jubilee chocolates to cakes with layers of everything you’ve ever dreamed of.

Next time project buddies will be working together to write and rehearse an advert for their new product, ready for filming, so watch this space!
