Local children performed a Nativity play for residents in a Peterborough care home on Thursday 10 December.
Children from Family Action Cygnets Pre-School visited Anchor’s Clayburn Court on Clayburn Road as part of the care home’s Christmas programme of activities.
Nikki Ayliff, home manager at Clayburn Court, said: “Everyone loved having the children here – it is such an important part of the festive season.
“We always love having visitors at Clayburn Court, but especially at this time of year as Christmas can be tough for some people. The children’s visit today was great fun and a real boost for residents’ wellbeing.”
“We were so lucky that the children were able to bring to us a taste of the performance they are performing at Peterborough Cathedral next week, it was a real treat for residents that won’t be able to attend the Cathedral performance.”
Queenie Taylor, 89, who has lived at Clayburn Court since it opened in September, said “The nativity is such a special part of Christmas, and it’s been lovely having the children here today.”
Audrey Smith, 89, said “It has been a very enjoyable afternoon with the children, I thoroughly enjoyed their performance, and they have said they will return in the New Year with more songs for us.”
Clayburn Court is a new 64-bed care home which provides 24 hour care and support for older people and people living with dementia. The home also provides respite care for two to four week periods.
