A unique project to link St Christophers House sheltered housing complex and Abbeyfields First School was completed over half term.
The new path will make it easier and safer to facilitate the reciprocal visits. These have ranged from the children inviting the tenants over to the school for the Christmas show to the pupils taking part in a reminiscence afternoon that tied in to their history studies.
A competition is taking place in school to come up with a name for the path and gate and St Christophers House will choose the winner.
It will be revealed at a grand opening event on March 23.
