Garden Visits are Music to Residents’ Ears

With lockdown easing, our staff and residents are keen to reintroduce some normality back into life and have started with inviting their entertainers in, to perform for the residents, from a safe distance the garden.

Seated safely in the warm and dry conservatory, last week, the residents enjoyed a visit from their musical friend, Jon, who brought with him his guitar, and this week, it was the turn of the Emmanuel Church, who, prior to lockdown, also regularly visited for services.

Bringing flowers and an abundance of instruments, Corrine and Richard set up on the patio and sang an array of traditional hymns, gospel and songs from musicals, with the residents singing along when they wanted to.

Unfortunately, with the sunny weather seemingly gone for the time being, they did get caught in a spot of rain, but they didn’t let that get them down and they kept calm and carried on.

Rose Higham, Activity Coordinator at Connors House said: “It’s great that we have been able to reintroduce some of our regular activities for the residents. Yes, we’re doing things a bit different but just seeing different faces and hearing live music is so uplifting for the residents.”
