The Melodians At Mill House

The Mill House residents were entertained in the Garden Lounge this week by the ‘Melodians’. The group consists of 5 members David Churchill, Roger Palmer, Les Powell, Mike Vickers and accompanying keyboard player Helen. The group arrived 15 minutes ahead of their scheduled start time so that they could set everything up and get ready to entertain. They always provide a program for every resident so that they can follow the lyrics of each song and sing-along if the mood takes them. It also has all the jokes so the residents are able to follow and read as they go.

Every member of the ‘Melodians’ entertain residents in an individual role, with short snaps of jokes, poems and songs, within a few minutes you can see the residents and staff singing together. They are absolutely fantastic with the residents which is the reason the home keeps asking them to come back, as they continue to surprise and delight with a new program every time. The music is very powerful and different, with a touch of humour. Residents get very involved in their show as they smile, laugh, sing-along and joke with them.

After the show everyone enjoyed a cup of tea and residents enjoyed chatting with members of the group. Mill House is looking forward to welcoming them back again soon.
