Teenagers have been helping to look after residents at a Weston nursing home.

The Manor House in Uphill Road South welcomed 20 teenagers from the National Citizen Service (NCS).

The youngsters helped out with chores at the home and spoke to residents over three days.

The home’s manager, Lorna Cross, said: “I was a little terrified before the event but quite excited as well, and now I just miss them so much.

“They brought laughter, goodwill, happiness and general fabulousness into my home. They painted, did the garden work, chatted to residents, made clay ornaments and made my residents smile.

“Their parents must be so incredibly proud of them.”

The NCS is a Government-funded project aimed at developing confidence and self-confidence in teenagers by giving them opportunities to learn life skills.
