A festival of events to celebrate the European Day of Solidarity Between Generations
To mark European Day of Solidarity Between Generations (which was on 29th April 2017), East Renfrewshire Libraries and partners organised an Intergenerational Festival of events for the month of May.
In partnership with the charities Generations Working Together and Outside the Box, organisations such as East Renfrewshire's Health & Social Care Partnership (HSCP) and local family centres - and with the support of East Renfrewshire Good Causes - a series of events took place in various libraries, a local church and community health centres across East Renfrewshire.
Invited along to the festival were several primary schools, community groups and other local organisations, with events open to all members of the public.

What went on?
Everyone's enthusiastic feedback is helping to generate ideas to further develop intergenerational work and opportunities for the community in the future.
All those who gave us feedback on the events by completing an evaluation form were entered into a prize draw for a Silverburn gift card. The lucky winner was Andrea McKeown, shown here with her sons, Jacob and Hamish (both 5), at Mearns Library.
A big thank you to all those involved in making the Intergenerational Festival a success!
