Sidmouth care home’s choir treat
RESIDENTS at Sidmouth’s Abbeyfield Court enjoyed a visit from the choir of Mill Water School.
Fifteen youngsters sang a medley of their favourite songs to residents at the Station Road residential home last Thursday, July 21.
For eight of the children, it was their last concert with the choir before they leave the Honiton school this year.
Lynne Woods, a carer at Abbeyfield Court, said: “Everyone really loved it- they always do when the children come to sing for them.”
She added that more than half of the residents watched the choir, and that even some members of staff took a well-earned break to come and listen.
