Talented young singers have been bringing festive cheer to residents at a Sanctuary Housing retirement living scheme in Chester.

Carol singing at Sanctuary’s Arderne House in Chester

Pupils from Upton Westlea Primary School sang a wide range of carols at Sanctuary’s Arderne House in Upton, where the Lord Mayor of Chester, Cllr Hugo Deynem, switched on the Christmas lights.

Avenue Services supplied the tree and lights at Arderne House

Jill Houlbrook, Councillor for Upton Ward, funded the tree and lights from her community budget and attended the light switch on ceremony alongside residents and pupils.  Avenue Services supplied the tree and the lights and refreshments at the event were donated by Tesco.

Lucy Heath, Sanctuary Housing area manager, commented: “This was a wonderful event that saw children from the local primary school attend Arderne House to celebrate Christmas with the residents. It was great to see children mixing with the residents.

Cllr Houlbrook added:  “I am so pleased that the residents from Arderne House and the local area are enjoying the tree. It is a pleasure to bring fun and laughter to Upton and to see the generations working together. I’d also like to thank the Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress for taking the time from their busy schedule to visit Upton. I very much hope we will repeat the event next year.”
