Series of carol singing treats across South Somerset
1:30pm Friday 20th December 2013 in News
LAST week saw the culmination of a series of carol singing treats across South Somerset for residents in Extra Care housing.
Hundreds of carols have been enjoyed, and dozens of mince pies eaten as the staff from Yarlington Housing Group visited every one of their ten schemes to bring festive joy to their residents.
"For some people, the only celebrations they have are what we can bring to them,” said senior extra care officer Jan Skeemer.
“We decided this year that staff from across all ofour schemes would get together at the end of each day to bring some of the joys of Christmas to those who are less mobile.”
The team all dressed for the occasions, and saw many Santas, elves, Mrs Christmases, and even a reindeer came along.
