Waters Edge residents get into the Scottish spirit

Residents at a Great Wyrley care home got into the Scottish spirit when a traditional bagpiper visited the home.

Waters Edge Care Home, in Great Wyrley, celebrated all things Scottish on Wednesday 25th April, in traditional Highland style. Piper Andy DeComyn played his bagpipes for the residents.

Across the whole of 2018 the residents at Waters Edge will be taken on a journey around the world. The countries visited so far have included France, Italy and Ireland with April’s stop being Scotland on the around the world journey.

Along with the Bagpiper performance residents had a chance to sample some traditional Scottish delicacies including haggis, shortbread & Irn-bru!

Reminiscence coordinator Jenny Cowley said: “We had a wonderful day when Andy visited the home and played his music. It’s such an unusual instrument and one that’s not very often encountered, he was able to walk around the home so all the residents could enjoy the live music.”
