Davers Court care home, on Shakers Lane, invited family and friends for a day of Easter-themed arts and crafts and games, including an Easter egg hunt, and pin the tail on the bunny.

Residents also enjoyed a special service in the coffee shop on Easter Sunday before making and decorating their own Easter eggs in the afternoon.

Wendy Harvey, home manager, said: “Easter is an important time of year here at Davers Court and many of our residents have lovely memories of celebrating Easter with their families.

“So as well as being great fun, our Easter fete was also a valuable reminiscence activity, especially for those living with dementia.
