STAFF and residents at a residential home in Tenbury have had a busy start to the Christmas holidays.

The Old Rectory Residential Home in Tenbury Wells got into the seasonal spirit when they held a ‘Mince Pies and Carols’ morning.

But is was not just about music and food because the event gave residents a chance to meet with people from the town.

The Old Rectory is registered to provide accommodation for nursing and personal care for up to 28 people.

It has 18 single and five shared rooms with nine of the rooms having en-suite facilities.

There is a regular programme of events and residents are considered to be very much part of the life of the town.
