Guest Blogger – Allyson Bertram, Older Peoples’ Sport Officer
At the beginning of 2012 I was involved in a project collecting memories about the 1948 Olympic Games in London. We mainly spoke to older people, but we also ran 3 intergenerational workshops involving year 9 pupils. This was limited due to the time and effort required to get high schools to take part. This was a one-off project.
I attended the intergenerational course because I wanted to learn more about the processes involved and what to avoid. In the future I would like to bring different generations together using a sport / physical activity theme, still thinking about where to start and talking to others.
