The team on Ward 20 were inspired by a hit TV show to bring some extra joy to their ward.

They followed the lead of the Channel 4 series 'Old Peoples Home for 4 year olds' and surprised their patients with an invitation to some tots from Spring Cottage Children's Place Nursery.

Patients gathered in one of their new day rooms ready to hear the children sing their well-practiced nursery rhymes to everyone. 

All the classics were sung such as Wheels on the Bus, Incy Wincy Spider and Twinkle Twinkle  Little Star.

Amy Scholes said: "All the patients and staff got involved and it really brought a lovely atmosphere to the ward."

When the children finished the ward thanked them with juice and sweets! 

The ward and nursery hope to keep a close connection and visit on more occasions such as Christmas...So it won't be the last you hear from them
