Manager, Ann Hall-Galley, said she had been 'delighted' to be able to take part.

'Care Home Open Day is a great way for us and our residents to connect with the local community,' she said.

'Visitors are able to meet residents, join in a range of activities and see first-hand the excellent range of services and the fantastic work that goes on behind the scenes here at our home.'

Activities happened throughout the afternoon, including live music with Terry Adams, a raffle, a barbecue, and a tour of the home and its ground.
