The little ones have made some special pictures for older people during the coronavirus outbreak.

The children taken along to the Jiggy Wrigglers sessions at St Mary's Church Hall on Monday (16th March) have been involved in this.

At the end of their movement and music class, they drew cards to be given to the residents at the Allenbrook Nursing Home in Fordingbridge.

The older people there aren't having many visitors at the moment, due to the Government advice on social distancing and preventing the spread of Covid-19 to vulnerable groups in particular.

Jiggy Wrigglers members wanted to do something 'in the spirit of helping our community'.

Anna Doran, who runs the sessions said: 

"We thought this would bring smiles to their faces! The children who took part are mostly between 1-2 years old and two that are ages 3 and 4. 

"They had lots and lots of fun doing their drawings and the older children both understood how important these picture would be in reaching out to vulnerable people in our community."

Jiggy Wrigglers runs classes for under 5s in Salisbury, Downton and Fordingbridge.

Monday's session was the last they'll be holding for the foreseeable future, as a result of the coronavirus response.
