A Suffolk care home will be transformed into Santa’s grotto as residents celebrate the run-up to the festive season.

The Stowlangcroft Hall Nursing Home has invited families and children to visit their winter wonderland on Saturday, November 10.

The fair will feature over 25 market stalls selling food, crafts and the main attraction of the live deer.

Alex Ball, group operations coordinator at Stow Healthcare Group said: “Animals in care homes have a huge impact on resident well-being and this is going to be a real festive treat and help us to kick off the festive season in style.

“In the summer we had a beach style day with real donkeys, some of them were even able to go into the ground floor rooms and visit the residents who were unable to walk.
