Pupils from Ysgol Nefyn went on a special Easter egg hunt to Plas Hafan residential home as part of Gwynedd Council and Bangor University’s Bridging the Generations project.

Residents and staff of Plas Hafan in Nefyn had hidden a number of Easter eggs in the building for the children to find, and had also decorated the building with colourful balloons. Paper paws had been carefully laid out on the floor which led to different rooms.

The children were assisted by the Easter bunny, who led them from room to room, and therefore all the residents had the opportunity to see the children having fun trying to find the Easter eggs.

At the end of the search each pupil was awarded an Easter egg by the Easter bunny and also had the opportunity to sing with some of the residents.

Cllr Dafydd Meurig, Gwynedd Cabinet member for adults, health and wellbeing, said: “It’s great to see this scheme going from strength to strength – and thank you to all those who have been part of the work, I’m sure everybody had great fun on the day.

“Schemes like this, that have been supported by the Bridging the Generations project, are invaluable in terms of increasing confidence and creating a unique learning environment.

“Projects like this are a fantastic way of realising our vision of bringing the generations together and seeing the positive benefits that it delivers.”
