NOVICE performers and seasoned karaoke stars took to the stage for an X Factor-themed karaoke night at an extra care development in Ellesmere Port.

Residents at Hollymere Extra Care Development on New Grosvenor Road serenaded the audience with a string of hits, from New York, New York and Lipstick on Your Collar, to I Only Wanna Be With You and That’s Amore.

Alison Parry, events and facilities manager at Hollymere, said: “It was a fantastic night – every single performer gave it their all and everyone who took part received a prize.

“Musical accompaniment was provided by local DJ, Disco Dave, who really helped to get the crowd going. The night was such a success that we’re going to hold more ‘talent show’ nights, so watch this space!”

Hollymere Extra Care Development offers safe and secure accommodation for people over 55 and provides additional support if required, such as access to 24-hour on-call staff, as well as a range of facilities and social activities. It helps older people live independently in their own homes, with varying levels of support adapted to their changing situation.
