A DAY OF YOUNG VISITORS FOR ELMWOOD RESIDENTS

08 December 2011

The residents of Elmwood enjoyed a day of visitors on Monday 5th January which comprised of two local primary schools.

Children from Parkwood Hall spent the morning with residents on the ground floor singing carols which featured some very special solo performances. They then spent some time speaking with our residents sharing their plans for the festive period such as nativity plays and more carol singing performances.

Later that day, residents on the second floor were joined by Bickley Primary and enjoyed an afternoon playing musical instruments and singing Christmas all whilst wearing Christmas hats.  

One resident commented ‘the children were so endearing, I enjoyed their singing and listening to the Christmas plans.’
