A coffee morning soundtracked by recorder music brought Christmas spirit to a care home.

The monthly coffee morning at Lancaster Grange Care Home, Fernwood, had a Christmas theme and was accompanied by the U3A Recorder Group, which played carols for everyone attending to sing along to.

Group leader Alison Wilson printed off lyric sheets so residents could get involved.

Activities organiser at the home Charlotte Widdison said: “The music is really good for them as some residents don’t talk, but they will sing.”

Members of the community went along to join in the coffee morning.

They included RAF personnel, Flight Lieutenant Paul Hughes and Flying Officer Vicky Delany.

Flying Officer Delany said: “Some residents who haven’t come out of their rooms in days come out to speak to us.

“We make an effort to come because we know what it means to them.”
