Residents of an Alfreton care home are taking a trip down Melody Lane - thanks to local churchgoers.

Each month, members of Alfreton Wesley church visit The Meadows home - and residents are invited to choose their own favourite hymns.

A team of church members lead the services, which also include a message, readings and prayers.

A church member said: “Since the services began, the number of residents attending the services has increased. The residents especially enjoy singing the old familiar hymns - many of them recalling days when they were young.”
