Bristol PBCC Senior Boys Band Perform At Nursing Home Event

Saturday 19th July 2014 saw the Bristol PBCC band perform a number of songs for the elderly at Woodlands Manor Care Home.

The band consisted of 5 young members of the Bristol PBCC aged between 14 and 16

The Guitars

Woodlands Manor is a family owned care home that was opened in 1994. Nursing Care is provided for 40 physically frail people in personal rooms all furnished to a high standard, many of which have en-suite facilities and has excellent size lounge and dining room areas.  It was in the main dining area at the front of the building that the Bristol PBCC band performed on this occasion.

When the home was approached regarding a possible performance, they were very excited as they were in the process of planning an event, the special occasion of an elderly lady named Alice who was celebrating her 102nd birthday.

The main feature of the day was the celebration of the 102nd birthday of Alice.

The Band with Alice

The band consisted of 5 young members of the Bristol PBCC aged between 14 and 16. The many, many hours of practise over the preceding weeks was about to pay off. They played a number of golden oldies such as ‘Rocking All Over The World’ along with gospel songs such as ‘Leaning On The Everlasting Arms’ and a nice country ballad which appealed to all those listening.

Drummer

During the performance members of staff were singing along with the songs and the elderly residents were joining in with waving hands and jigging feet.  The main feature of the day was the celebration of the 102nd birthday of Alice. Alice, a very spritely soul, was extremely pleased and very thankful for the music, the crowning touch being when the boys put their instruments down and just sang Happy Birthday with everybody joining in.

Many of Alice’s relatives who were present thoroughly enjoyed the performance and expressed their appreciation and thanks.

As they were packing up the boys found time to stop and talk to some of the residents. It was obvious from the comments received that they were all very thankful. “We’d love to have them back again” the staff commented.
