Steven Hitcham, Epic's director, said: "It went really well, the singing put a smile on the tenants' faces and some of them had a tambourine so they could play along. They really appreciated the time the children took out of their day to be there."

Mr Hitcham said the children also made Christmas cards, along with students from Aylsham High School. 

He said the caroling was part of a programme of intergenerational activities funded by Clarion Futures - part of the care scheme landlord, Clarion Housing - which was set to continue next year.
