A touch of magic for party

A touch of festive magic  united the generations  at Pentre Mawr in Abergele this week when school children joined residents  at the Sheltered Housing Scheme for older people for their Christmas party.

Warden Alison Pring said: “Pupils from Ysgol Glan Gele kindly joined us to perform carols and songs then stayed to be completely mesmerised  along with our residents  by magician Jay Gatling.

“It was lovely to see an intergenerational  audience enjoying this  experience together. Thanks to a generous grant from Age Cymru we had a truly wonderful Christmas tea party. Many thanks as well to Jan Williams Tesco Community Champion, for her donation of goodies  for the children and to everyone who helped to prepare and serve the buffet.

Alison also paid tribute to Mrs Anne Rothwell, Chair of the Pentre Mawr Residents’ Association not only for her support for the Christmas Party but also for her contribution and support throughout the year, helping to make life happy and comfortable for all the residents at Pentre Mawr.
