Spring Visit to Brightwater Madeley

by Alison Young | Oct 30, 2015

On Friday 23rd November, the Primary Choir accompanied by staff members and members of the P&F went over to our neighbours at Brightwater Madeley Retirement Village to sing to the residents and then presented them each with a bunch of spring flowers. The flowers were donated by the College community and arranged into bunches by the P&F. Kingsway has an ongoing relationship with a couple of retirement villages including Brightwater Madeley as part of our outreach into the community.
The choir under the able directorship of Mrs Sharon Davis sang a number of rousing items and particularly well received by the residents was a medley of older tunes including ‘It’s a Long Way to Tipperary’.  The students sang most beautifully and it was very touching to see the joy that music can bring to the residents, including some who have dementia.
After the singing each student presented flowers to residents and chatted to them, even visiting some who were confined to bed and had not been able to attend the performance. It was a wonderful time of encouragement and an opportunity to be a blessing to our community
