With government lockdown restrictions easing, and the beautiful sunny weather we have had throughout July, several of our homes jumped at the opportunity to welcome back live entertainers. For many, it was the first time in 18 months they were able to invite singers back into their gardens, and it is fair to say our residents have undoubtedly missed them.
Dukes Court Care Home hosted resident favourites the Nice ‘N’ Easy men to perform a classic Rat Pack repertoire at their garden party. New resident Janet enjoyed them so much that she requested the duo to return for her 90th birthday party in September. She quoted, “I would love for them to come and sing for my birthday. They can sing me some Glenn Miller.” Pianist Richard Sully visited Merlin Court Care Home to perform popular songs, including ‘Sweet Caroline’ and ‘Can’t Help Falling in Love’. Sharing his visit on Facebook, Richard commented, “Lovely to be back at my dad’s former care home, Merlin Court. Flattered to be the first entertainer to be asked back and was lovely seeing you all again!”
