A Bury St Edmunds care home is inviting the community to join in with the celebrations at its summer fête this weekend.

People are being invited to drop into Davers Court, in Shakers Lane, from 1pm-4pm on Saturday, June 23, for an afternoon of activities, food, and live entertainment.

There will also be a face painter and sweet stall for children and the care home’s chefs will prepare a barbecue for everyone to enjoy.

Wendy Harvey, home manager, said: “Hosting a fête provides us with a great opportunity to invite the local community to join us for a day of family-friendly fun.

“There is a real buzz around the care home already, with preparations now well underway.

“Here at Davers Court, it is important for us to build strong relationships with the people of Bury St Edmunds and we look forward to welcoming the community to join us for what promises to be a fantastic day of fun and games.”
