A new film project is bringing together the generations in Steeton, Silsden and Addingham.

Film and social care company Imagin-arium Seed is working with present-day children and those who grew up in the villages during the 1950s and 1960s.

The project ties in with centenary celebrations at Hothfield School, Silsden, where pupils past and present are working together.

Today’s Hothfield pupils have to talk to the former pupils to learn what the school was like a various points during the past 100 years.

Imaginarium spokesman Marina Magdalena said: “We are helping them find fun and creative ways of sharing stories, playing games and sharing time together.

“We will be looking at ways to better mix the older and younger generations, and see how coming together can mutually benefit both ends.”

The Silsden part of the project, commissioned by district councillor Andrew Mallinson, will culminate in an event on June 26. Hothfield School is keen to develop relationships with people and would love to hear from former pupils with a story or photo.
