Youngsters Bring ‘Miles Of Smiles’ To Nursing Home


Students from Robert Blake Science College in Bridgwater brought ‘miles of smiles’ to the residents of Avalon Nursing Home, when they visited to share a festive musical programme with them.


Wearing Santa hats or reindeer antlers, students from years 7 to 11 and their music teacher Matt Hawkins, sang a mixture of traditional carols such as Silent Night, and seasonal favourites such as Santa Claus Is Coming To Town.


Lisa Priddice, Avalon’s joint activity co-ordinator, said: “It was a lovely concert and the residents really enjoyed it.


“The time and effort put into the event by the students and Mr Hawkins was very much appreciated, and we’re looking forward to a return visit from them in the New Year.”


Teacher Matt Hawkins said: “The students really loved taking part in the performance and have been asking about when we are going back.”


Avalon Nursing Home is a purpose-built care home on Bridgwater’s Taunton Road, run by Camelot Care, specialist providers of nursing and dementia care for the elderly
