Singer Kevin Mack performed classics made famous by Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Junior and others at Gilbert Court in Charford.

He took centre stage in the garden to maintain social distancing while residents watched, listened, clapped and joined in from their windows.

Dennis Hamilton, Gilbert Court’s activities co-ordinator, said: “Kevin was amazing – everyone had so much fun and it was just what we needed at this time.”
