The video was the brainchild of our diversional therapists Bernadette Waller and Sandra Trafford. It was scripted and produced by one of our village drivers, the talented Harley Alexander, with help from maintenance supervisor Anthony Chandler-Royle.

Our team and the stars of the show have now been well and truly bitten by the movie bug and the community’s response has delighted them. So stand by for more!
