Children sang festive songs and played musical instruments to residents in a Plymstock care home on Thursday 8 of December.

Pupils from Goosewell Primary School visited Anchor’s Selkirk House  in Church road as part of the care home’s Christmas programme of activities.

To thank the fifty three schoolchildren for entertaining them, the care home residents  give the Children a large tin of sweets to share. During the visit to Selkirk House, Lizzie a pupil from the choir was picked by School to switch on the Christmas tree Lights to the delight of the residents. 

 Joy Hylands  who has lived in Selkirk House for two years, said she really looked forward to seeing the children as they are all so very talented. Resident Nancy Jeffery who has a niece in the choir, said: “I enjoyed hearing the children singing as it reminded me of when I was younger. I used to love performing in carol concerts.

She said: “The visit from the School is such a special event. I really enjoyed it. There are so many interesting things to do at Selkirk House.

“There is always something different going on every day. I particularly enjoy reminiscing and the Sing-a-longs organised by the staff.”
