Elf and happiness for nursing home residents

Staff at a Charmouth nursing home unleashed their inner ‘Elfness’ last week - to help raise money for the Alzheimer’s Society.
The team at Bymead House took part in national Elf Day to help beat dementia and raise awareness of the condition.
Resident therapy dogs Rufus and Lola also joined in the fun by wearing doggie elf jumpers.
The home's residents, along with their families and friends, were entertained, served refreshments all day and took part in a natural foliage wreath-making session.
Elf day is one of many activities at Bymead House during December. A packed programme includes handbell ringers from Mountjoy School, Charmouth Brownies, Lyme Regis Town Band, various choirs and tribute singers.
