Hartbeeps baby and toddler music class was held at Martin’s House care home on Stevenage’s Jessop Road, and children, residents and care staff dressed as bunnies for the occasion.

Hartbeeps session leader, Kirstie Oliver, said: “It was such a lovely experience hearing everyone sing together.

“The smiles on the faces of the residents were infectious and it was lovely seeing the babies and children interact with the residents.”

Tracy Milner, team leader at Martins House, said: “It was lovely to see lots of smiling faces. It meant so much to all our wonderful residents. We hope for this to be the first of many at the care home.
