The Alice in Wonderland-themed event was organised by Britten Court, in Love Road, last week in conjunction with Care Home Open Day.

The initiative is designed to develop lasting relationships between care homes and local communities.

Residents and visitors were joined by musical duo, Amer, miniature donkeys and pupils from Roman Hill Primary School – who put on a special dance performance.

Manager Chloe Swarbrick said: “We had a fantastic time getting dressed up in our costumes for a fantastic Care Home Open Day celebration.”
