Residents at Sutton Lodge Care Home were given an early Christmas present when children from nearby Priestsic Primary School came and sang carols for them.
The youngsters sang a selection of traditional carols and well-known yuletide songs and presenters from Mansfield 103 did a countdown to the switch-on of the home’s Christmas lights.
Activities co-ordinator Sarah Ellison said the residents loved hearing the children sing.
“Everyone was really on a high,” she said.
The home has really gone to town with its Christmas decorations and has even created a model ice rink full of skating penguins in its entrance area.
