I'm creating a footer menu and want to show an entry id and its children, atm I'm just getting the descendants but struggling to show the parent and children as well

<nav class="cell small-12">

    <ul class="nested  menu vertical">

        {% set entries = craft.entries.section('pages').descendantOf(8) %}

        <p>{{ entry.parent }}</p>

        {% nav entry in entries %}

        <li><a class="c-main-nav__li__a" href="{{ entry.url }}">{{ entry.title }}</a>

            {% ifchildren %}
            <ul class="menu vertical sub-items">
                {% children %}
            {% endifchildren %}


        {% endnav %}



Appreciate this is the wrong approach any feedback appreciated on how to display the title of id 8 as well as its children, atm parent.entry is not showing


Try merging like this

{% set parent = craft.entries.section('pages').id(8) %}

{% set entries = craft.entries.section('pages').descendantOf(8).limit(1) %}

{% set entries = parent|merge(entries) %}

{% for entry in entries.all() %}
  output your entries here
{% endfor %}
