Live entertainment is back at the Wingfield care home in Trowbridge, to the delight of residents.

Due to the pandemic, many of the usual visits from performers were impossible.

Small groups can now, once again enjoy live entertainment indoors and outdoors with strict protocols in place. All entertainers are required to have a negative Lateral Flow Device test result before being allowed into the home, and infection control measures and social distancing in place for every visit.

The Wiltshire Rural Music society was one of the first to perform in the garden. In small socially distanced groups, the residents enjoyed listening to their favourite song and singing-a-long with the performers.

Peter Mason, General Manager at the home, said: “We are lucky to have a garden. It is wonderful to be able to offer live entertainment to our residents once again, they have so missed being able to have performances in the home so this is a brilliant opportunity.”
