Eversleigh – Update from project leader

“I’ve played at Eversleigh three times now and the residents are getting to know me.  They are so enthusiastic as far as a sing song is concerned . There are about 15 people in all and the average age is 90 !!! So songs and musicals that were written round the 30s/40s go down a treat .

We have a couple of real characters – John who lights up when he sings thinking he’s back in the clubs , and a lady who loves a moan but then gets into the swing of it all. They have many stories to tell and over the next few weeks we may get a few good ones . Anyhow I feel they love the hour I spend with them playing the piano and singing . It’s such a boost to their memory . It’s really a jolly fun afternoon . I love going there it gives me a boost also!
