New Zealand celebrated its inaugural Grandparents Day in 2018. This year, because of the lockdown, our villagers cannot spend the day with their grandchildren. Knowing that, a few weeks ago Real Living made a call to see if the residents wanted to share their favourite family pictures...and they certainly did!
The residents loved browsing the albums in search of the best picture, specially now that they have all the time in their hands with the lockdown stopping most activites and gatherings at the villages. Some of them found it too hard to select only one picture, so they decided to send several pictures instead.
At Remuera Gardens, some of the residents' families got involved in the project, with grandchildren sending pictures and lovely messages to their grandparents.
The villages made collages with the residents' pictures and they're displaying them in public areas for everybody to enjoy them. The display is a tribute tothe special bond that grandparents share with their grandchildren.
