Brooke House residential care home, in Brooke Gardens, Brooke, is inviting families to its summer garden fete from 2pm to 5pm on Saturday, July 30.

Home manager Dean Jermy said: “After the long isolation of the Covid lockdowns it is great to be able to put on an event for the local community again.”

There will be a range of stalls, including bric-a-brac, crafts, sweets, cakes, records, books and food.

Traditional fete games will include a coconut shy, wine or water and Guess the Weight of the Cake.

There will be face painting and a children’s fancy dress competition judged by Dean and hospitality manager Kellie O’Dea.

Further attractions include a tombola and raffle with exciting prizes, including a grand hamper of chocolates.

Dean said: “Brooke House was once the grand family home of the Mackintosh family so we decided to celebrate our history with a delicious chocolate hamper prize.”
