Residents from Hallgarth Care Home in Durham, joined other over 60s at a coffee afternoon at St Oswald’s Church Hall. After all, there’s nothing better than a coffee, cake and a chat.
Residents from Hallgarth, walked to the church before being welcomed by students who were running the event. The residents spoke to them about their studies, and were interested at the variety in the courses on offer – maths, law and psychiatry were just some of the courses the students were completing.
After a brew and a cake, the residents heard from a group of flutists who gave a variety of renditions which included some Disney pieces, classical pieced by Bach, Japanese music and finished off with the Bohemian Rhapsody which got everyone’s feet tapping.
A lovely afternoon was had by all and these coffee afternoons are sure to be on the activity agenda in the future.
