Choir visits care home

An all-male choir sang for the residents of a Henley care home.

The Bucks Voices went to Acacia Lodge in Quebec Road, where about 20 residents and staff packed into a room for the special concert. The choir sang Christmas carols, hymns, show songs and singalong tunes. The visit was arranged by Jim Cleary, from Mill End, whose mother-in-law Jean Webster is a resident of the home. She is 110 and the fifth oldest women in Britain.

Mr Cleary said: “It is Christmas time and it seemed a good time for my friends in the choir to visit. It’s also a great chance to celebrate another Christmas with my mother-in-law.” Keith Pulford, who formed the 16-strong choir in 2011, said: “We were absolutely delighted to be invited. We visit a lot of residential care homes through the year.” Wendy Fricker, activities co-ordinator at the home, said: “I asked Mr Cleary if he could arrange a choir for our residents as one of our first Christmas activities.”
