The MYPs in Keighley organised an intergenerational event in November 2010 with a twist.
The theme for the event was “The Generation Game” The venue for the event was Farish House in Keighley, an Incommunities sheltered scheme.
The event consisted of two activities, cake decorating and cross generation – cross stitch. We invited all members of BKYP to attend this event, and when we got started we split the MYPs up so each table had a mix of older people and young people. The cake decorating task was where our host – Ibby – came into his own as his own version of Bruce Forsyth. Each table had to come up with team names, the three team names were, Young at Heart, The Young ones and The Generation. “Bruce’s” glamorous assistants displayed the pre decorated cake to each team, whilst “Bruce” explained the rules of the task. Each team had 20mins to recreate the pre decorated cake using the materials provided – the catch, the materials provided were not the same materials used to create the pre decorated cake so each team had to improvise a lot.
This was a great task and every person in each team
contributed. There were a lot of laughs and food colouring mishaps but at
the end of the allocated time every team had created their interpretation of
pre decorated cake. “Bruce” and his glamorous assistants had the arduous
task of judging the cakes, once all the points were counted in, "Bruce”
gave the “scores on the doors” and Young at Heart were declared the winners. After a tea break
the next task was the cross stitch cross generation activity. In the same
teams each person had to cross stitch their name and 3 positive personality
traits they had but not put their age on the piece. The aim of this was
to show that age doesn’t determine what sort of person you are and in so
challenge stereotypes generations may have of others. This was a change
of pace compared to the cake decorating but it was just as successful, everyone
either produced a cross stitch or helped other who haven’t cross stitch before.
This work will be framed and displayed at Youth Service Headquarters and
another copy at Farish House.
The young people of Shipley constituency felt that there was a need to break down the barriers between young and elderly people in society and the Shipley MYPs took it upon themselves to address these issues. They organised a meeting to take place between MYPs and young people from Shipley and surrounding areas along with a selection of elderly people which took place in the Shipley Council Chambers. They discussed reasons as to why there was a lack of integration between young people and elderly people and discussed strategies to increase understanding between the two and eliminate negative stereotypes. Both the elderly members of the meeting and the Shipley young people and MYPs felt that the meeting was a great success and helped MYPs to understand methods to increase the fluidity of interaction between the sections of society.
