What a treat we had last night at the DVLA Choir “Tunes for Ty Olwen” Annual Concert. We were entertained with a wide variety of music performed with joy and gusto and also an opportunity for individual members of the choir to showcase their incredible talent. Well done to Emily and all the girls, comperes, accompanist, support and technical staff for a brilliant evening topped off with a guest appearance from Mal Pope.

What a joy to see one of our patients in his bed out in the newly laid out gardens and they were looking magnificent today as the choir took a well earned lunch break before going back to work.
