Wow! This must have been one of the most memorable afternoons in Activities ever - a real treat for the assembled throng of residents and staff.
Steve Morton, our Head of Kitchen, had arranged for his 17 year old daughter Lily to sing a selection of songs from musicals and the Opera. It was truly a magical afternoon with Lily's exquisite voice filling the room. Some 26 assembled residents and an ever-increasing contingent of staff, who popped in to listen, were all spellbound.
After an encore, Lily told us that was the first time she had ever performed to a large group! Everyone was totally amazed.
From everyone at Birtley, we wish this very talented young lady every success for the future.
