It was with great pleasure that we welcomed local elderly residents into the Academy for our annual Christmas meal and evening of entertainment on Tuesday. Music was provided by the Academy’s talented choir, and we were joined by local cellist and pianist Dr Robin Stephens. After a lovely dinner, made by staff from our catering company T(n)S, and with food donated by Tesco Extra Baguley, staff from Brooklands Public Library did a paint-a-pot activity, and this was followed by bingo.
Staff and students enjoyed chatting to our guests and helping to serve the meal.
We’d like to thank Kieran Jones, Community Champion at Tesco, Kirsty Taylor of the Bideford Centre, Pearl and her team at T(n)S Catering, Ann-Marie Smith and her team at Brooklands Public Library, Dr Robin Stephens, Mrs Moreton, the Academy’s Music Teacher, and all the volunteers who made this event so lovely.
