Residents in a care home were delighted to be visited by carol singers for the switch-on of their Christmas lights.

The choir of St George’s Church, Chippenham Road, Harold Hill, and deputy mayor Cllr Linda Van den Hende came to share the festive event with residents at the Romford Nursing Care Centre, Neave Crescent, Harold Hill.

The Christmas memory tree has no baubles, but instead residents had left notes for their loved ones.

After the carol concert, residents enjoyed some mince pies and resident Brenda Nunn continued the concert with an impromptu version of Amazing Grace.

Home manager Helen Hulme said: “As a dementia specialist home, we feel it is important to engage with the community and we very much appreciate all the support for our residents, families and friends.”
