Old and young come together for a carol service
ELDERLY residents were treated to a special carol service from youngsters to help them get into the festive mood.
More than 15 pre-school children fromthe College Nursery, in Park Crescent, Peterborough, visited the nearby Park House Care Home this week.
The youngsters regaled residents with the traditional carols that they had been busy practising.
Rebecca Matthews, manager of The College Nursery, said: “We wanted to raise the children’s awareness of their wider community and encourage them to do something for others, so this was the perfect opportunity for them.
“They practised singing their Christmas nursery rhymes and learned all of the actions.
“Then on the day they were so excited to go and sing the songs to the residents of Park House.
“They sang beautifully and giggled when they were applauded.
“The children gave mince pies and Christmas cards to the residents and a wonderful time was had by all. We hope to make this an annual tradition.”
The nursery is part of Peterborough Regional College and currently cares for children from three months old to just under five years old.
It is open all week from 8am to 6pm for 50 weeks of the year. It provides a service for both staff and students of the college as well as being open to the general public.
