WHEN it came to putting on a show for residents the manager of a Wrexham care home turned to home-grown talents.
The festive concert is one of the highlights of the year at Hillbury House.
And manager Mildred Heyward knew exactly where to turn when she started drawing up a programme.
She is a member of Pontybodkin Ladies’ Guild, and she invited fellow members along to read seasonal items.
Mildred’s husband Don is a member of Cymau Male Voice Choir and they were happy to support the event.
Resident David Roberts, who used to be a keen singer, volunteered, and his tenor solo was warmly received.
Adding to the atmosphere was a band comprising pupils of St Joseph’s multi-faith secondary school in Wrexham.
Pupils from St Joseph’s regularly go on work experience to Pendine Park, Hillbury and another care home, Gwern Alyn.
Earlier in the year, Pendine Park donated £1,000 worth of computer equipment used by pupils studying Health and Social Care.
Mildred said: “We have held concerts for the past four years and the residents really enjoy them.”
Also present were residents of Gwern Alyn Home and the Mayor and Mayoress of Wrexham, Cllr and Mrs David Griffiths.
Pendine Park proprietor Mario Kreft said: “We are extremely grateful to everybody who gave their time to create such a marvellous concert.”
