CHRISTMAS came early for Ingleby Barwick’s elderly as a community group took them for festive pub lunch.
The Ingleby Barwick Community Partnership paid for residents of Ingleby Care Home to enjoy a slap-up celebration at the Myton House Farm Pub.
Alongside lunch of turkey with all the trimmings, the residents were treated to entertainment from the Salvation Army Band and singer Simon.
Pupils from Winstone Primary School also attended to perform Christmas carols during the meal.
The community partnership has been organising Christmas events and activities since it launched in January 2013.
Ingleby Care Home resident Kathlyn Toms said: “It’s lovely to go out and have a tipple with friends, especially at Christmas.”
Kirsty Walsh, activities coordinator at the care home, on Lamb Lane, said: “It was a lovely way for the residents to start the Christmas festivities.
“We’d like to say a big thank you to the Ingleby Barwick Community Partnership for all the work they do with our care home.”
