Carols with the Residents

Carols with the Residents

Readers of this blog will know that a week ago we had our annual carol concert with Blackheath and Bramley Choral Society. This year a new initiative in the lead-up to Christmas was 'Carols with the Staff' in afternoon Activities. 

What a wonderful afternoon it was! Stuart White who, among his many skills is one the organists at Bramley Church, volunteered to play the piano, while our new Estate Manager, Jill Parrott, showed that she too is multi-talented by providing additional musical accompaniment on her flute.  

The programme for the afternoon included six carols and Christmas songs, two poems and two readings from the Bible, one of which was read by Resident Jack Richardson. The highlight for the Staff Choir and the 25-30 assembled residents was the '12 days of Birtley Christmas', complete with props! The rather hectic rendition was greeted by spontaneous applause and cheering. Before afternoon tea was served there was time for a few more carols - favourites selected by our Residents.

12 days of Birtley Christmas - 5 Catheters!
