Eric, who has been playing around the Teesside area since his days as lead singer with Stockton band, The Blue Caps, visited Hazelgrove on Bank Holiday Monday. And his good old fashioned country-style playing got a resounding “yee ha” from residents, as he brought the Easter celebrations to a close.
Tina Temple, general manager at Hazelgrove, said: “Eric’s performance was a great way to end the Easter holiday. We always make a special effort with our Easter celebrations and the residents have worked really hard making decorations and our beautiful Easter banner. We also like to make sure we give a really warm welcome to friends and family who visit on the bank holidays. Our Easter Egg raffle on Good Friday, in particular, was a big hit with residents and visitors alike and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the long Easter break – Eric’s visit was the cherry on the cake.”
