Residents living at Weavers’ Court Extra Care scheme in Alnwick were treated to a special Christmas performance by talented pupils from nearby The Duchess’s Community High School.
The young musicians performed Christmas songs alongside members of the Weavers’ Court residents’ choir during their annual Christmas meal. The event was organised by Karbon Homes which is holding similar Christmas events at two of its other Extra Care schemes in Chester-le-Street and Prudhoe.
Scheme manager Liz Pratt invited the school back to perform following the success of last year’s event. Residents invited family members to attend, and members of the local community in Alnwick were also invited to join the Christmas meal, which is fast becoming an annual event for everyone locally to enjoy.
Weavers’ Court is a £7m Extra Care scheme and has been designed to enable residents to enjoy living independently, but includes the added security of on-site care and support, available 24 hours a day.
Liz said: “Throughout the year, we organise regular events to bring together our residents and the local community. The Christmas meal is really special and one which our residents look forward to. “The Christmas carols and songs were performed beautifully and we’re all feeling in the Christmas spirit. I would like to thank the staff and the children from The Duchess’s Community High School – the pupils were fantastic and clearly very talented.”
