A Colchester care home has welcomed the local community to celebrate the sunshine at its annual summer fair.
Nayland House Care Home, off Bear Street, enjoyed an afternoon of sunshine, stalls and homemade cakes, as friends and family joined staff and residents for their summer open day.
The event raised £230 to pay for treats and activities for the residents.
Musician Michael Wigley took the stage to entertain the guests with pop songs from the 60s and 70s. Both residents and guests enjoyed singing along to the classic hits.
Emma Engutsamy, Manager at Nayland House Care Home, said: “We would like to thank everyone who was able to attend our sunny summer fair. Everyone had a brilliant time, enjoying the delicious cakes, the stalls, and the excellent entertainment.
“The happiness and care of our residents are our top priorites, and the positive impact of spending time with friends and family at fun events is something they all enjoy. We look forward to welcoming the local community to more events later in the year.”
Nayland House Care Home forms part of Larchwood Care and is managed by Healthcare Management Solutions. The service provides residential care for up to 53 older people.
