Sophie sings the classics

Local singer Sophie Bennett helped residents at Birch Green Care Home mark VE Day recently when she visited.


Sophie, a fully-qualified vocalist who specialises in singing at locations including care and nursing homes, dressed for the occasion in 1940s-style clothes.


In Birch Green’s lounge, which was specially decorated for the event with bunting, residents enjoyed the singing with some tasty treats including fairy cakes and fruit cakes.

A helping hand to celebrate

At our recent Helping Hands senior citizens’ lunch there was a special guest of honour.


The monthly event held at the local Toby carvery sees a number of residents and staff gather together for a meal and chat, and we had an extra reason to celebrate – Hildegard’s birthday.


Hildegard had a fabulous day and we all took the chance to wish her a happy birthday.
