Unable to continue through lockdown the students came up with a new way to raise spirits.

They created a video showing staff and students dancing to 'The Dementia Twist' from their homes.

Aimee and Ashton, who are both members of the A Team as well as Miss Jarvis’ Emerge Dance Company, created the heartwarming video which has been circulating care homes in the area.

The home videos were pulled together to the sound of 60s hit 'Let's Twist Again' by Chubby Checker.

Introducing the video, Phil Neeve, the student council coordinator said: "Students were very concerned when recently hearing about the difficulties facing residents of care homes and we wanted to do something that might bring a smile to people’s faces.

"Thank you to everybody, both staff and students, who have taken part. It has been a lot of fun to make and I hope it brightens your day if only for a moment."
