Following a challenging lockdown and with Covid-19 restrictions gradually lifting across the UK, social housing provider Bromsgrove District Housing Trust (bdht) has been keeping resident spirits up with outdoor musical performances across its Independent Living Schemes.
Residents at bdht’s Lowes Court development were treated to the sounds of the 1950’s and 60’s, with first class entertainment from local musician, Kevin Mack, who performed classic hits from the golden age of music including those made famous by the Rat Pack.
Lowes Court is an Independent Living Scheme designed for vulnerable, older residents and those with additional needs, ensuring they receive the support they need to live independently.
Hannah Ross, independent living manager at bdht, said: “The Covid-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdowns have had a massive impact on many people across the UK, and we’ve seen this firsthand with our residents across our assisted living schemes who have been unable to see and spend time with loved ones.
“Now that the sun has come out and the latest Government guidance has been updated allowing for socially distanced outdoor gatherings for up to 30 people, we wanted to celebrate the start of summer in style and lift everyone’s spirits. We’d like to say a huge thank you to Kevin Mack for a fantastic afternoon of entertainment.”
