    Some more amazing photos, Katherine! Congratulations to you and to Winsome – as well as Helen Turner, Community Catalysts, for overseeing the Innovation Challenge on behalf of Leicestershire County Council.
    Thank you so much for taking the trouble to write a guest blogpost about this wonderful project while you have been so busy organising this lovely celebration. So glad Mum and I were able to come along! I hope the project goes from strength to strength and that many other older people and children will be able to share this simple and brilliant inter-generational experience:) Gill
