Executive Member for Adult Social Care Councillor John Taylor said: ‘’Thank you to all our Carers who joined for this fun filled afternoon of singing and socialising.

‘’We know it is important to provide these opportunities and spaces to take some time out for themeselves and to make meaningful connections with others who also care for someone.’’
