Cambridge mum Rebecca Broadbent regularly takes groups of parents and preschool children to visit local rest homes. Not only is this a salve for loneliness, it sparks interaction, communication and mobility in residents, says Tracy Fairhall, activities coordinator for Raeburn Lifecare in Cambridge.… View moreCambridge mum Rebecca Broadbent regularly takes groups of parents and preschool children to visit local rest homes. Not only is this a salve for loneliness, it sparks interaction, communication and mobility in residents, says Tracy Fairhall, activities coordinator for Raeburn Lifecare in Cambridge.

For Rebecca, it is simply a joy to spread joy. She remembers the first rest home visit she arranged. “At one point I looked over at a lovely resident who was 100 and he was kind of shaking and I was worried. I got closer and saw that he was shaking with laughter because my boys were having a paper plane competition, throwing paper planes from one end of the lounge to the other. It was beautiful.”

At Chamberlains Ford, the river is OK for a dip most of the time. But a few kilometres down at … View more

At Chamberlains Ford, the river is OK for a dip most of the time. But a few kilometres down at popular campsite Coes Ford, people are advised to stay out of the water.
