Residents at a South Elmsall independent living scheme got into the festive spirit when they were entertained by local students.

Singers from Minsthorpe Community College visited Mellwood House and performed a number of carols. Residents also enjoyed a free raffle with prizes donated by Wakefield District Housing, which organised the event.

Jane Gwilliam, WDH tenant involvement officer, said: “More than half the residents turned up to see the choir sing. Many joined in and it was clear that they were enjoying themselves. It was a nice event for our residents this Christmas.”
