It’s become a time-honoured tradition for the midlands based Adept Care Home residents to go head-to-head in the festive, family-favourite singing competition which is held at St. Catherine’s Church in Burbage.

Each of the 7 choirs performed two of their favourite songs, including a Christmas classic, which included a rousing performance of ‘We Wish you a Merry Christmas’ and an original composure of “He’ll be coming down the chimney when he comes”. Whilst also fun, the choirs judged by an experienced panel, including the leader of St Catherine’s church, Father Andrew. The resident choirs enjoyed the rest of the day with festive activities, a fish’n’chips lunch from Burbage Fisheries, home-made mince pies and a tiple or two of mulled wine.

The awards were announced after lunch where residents watched with anticipation as the winners were revealed. The categories included ‘Best Creative Choir’ and ‘Best Traditional Choir.’

“We have had such a wonderful day, singing together,” said John Keytes (85), resident at Bowood Court and Mews. “It is fantastic to receive an award, our choir club is one of our favourite activities,” said Frank Leech (78), resident and choir club member.

Adept Care Homes Communities Director, Joe Lock said: “Singing is a much-loved past time for our residents, and we have all enjoyed months of practice along with the final performances. The church has been amazingly supportive and with performances of Jingle Bells and Winter Wonderland, we created some festive enjoyment! A huge congratulations to everyone involved in delivering something truly special for our residents.”

“We have had such a wonderful time judging these awards as we do every year, and the performances get better every year. Well done to all the residents and Merry Christmas!” said a representative from the church.
