These little elves helped spread some Christmas cheer and put a big smile on faces across the Fylde!
Toddlers from Happy Days Nursery in Poulton donned their Santa hats to perform to pensioners at the town’s Methodist Church this week.
The 10 youngsters combated stage fright to sing traditional carols – plus a few of their own festive favourites – to elderly people who use Home Instead, the UK’s leading home care service for people suffering from dementia.
Following the carol service, the children handed out home-made Christmas gift tags to the pensioners who wrote messages for them to hang on a special memory tree.
Hayley Haworth, Setting Manager at Happy Days Nursery, said: “This is the first time we have done something like this and it was a wonderful event. The children love singing and the response from the pensioners was so lovely.
“It is such a festive thing to do and it was lovely to experience both generations enjoyed the event so much. I’m sure it will be something for them both to cherish.”
Happy Days Nurseries provide childcare for children aged three months to five years at a number of centres across the Fylde coast.
The children from the nursery were performing in front of pensioners from Home Instead, the sister company of Happy Days Nursery, owned and operated by David and Jackie Hoyle.
Hayley added: “The children are all so excited about Christmas and this experience has made them even more excited!”
