Community choir leads singalong at Stretton Hall
A ‘Good Old Days’ themed musical afternoon had residents singing along at Morris Care’s Stretton Hall in All Stretton.
Rockspring Community Choir from Ludlow delighted an appreciative audience with a selection of popular show tunes as part of the afternoon of entertainment. Residents entered into the spirit of the occasion by wearing period hats and joining in with the singing.
Popcorn cupcakes and dandelion and burdock drinks added to the fun at Stretton Hall, which provides quality care for up to 50 people, including specialist care for those living with dementia.
Liz Hallen, Home Manager at Stretton Hall, said: “Rockspring Community Choir put on a great show which everyone enjoyed. It was lovely to see our residents singing along.
“We hold a variety of activities and special events to engage people and create happy experiences, which provide real benefits to our residents. It is all part of our approach to delivering quality care in a home from home environment.”
