MORE than 200 people visited the annual summer fete at Watlington and District Nursing Home on Saturday.

They enjoyed games, fairground rides, stalls and refreshments at the Hill Road home, which provides nursing, dementia, palliative, intermediate and respite care.

There was a hair-braiding and manicure stand and residents had their own stall selling plant pots covered with coloured paper, varnished and planted with herbs.

Games included ping-pong, boules, guess the sweets in the jar, guess the weight of the cake, Aunt Sally and throwing plastic chickens through hula hoops. There was also a tombola.

Julie Cooper, manager of the Sanctuary Care home, said: “We were amazed by the number of people who came and the lovely weather was the icing on the cake.



“Everybody enjoyed themselves and it went very well. It was a great team effort because a lot of work goes into the fete.

“It’s good for the residents because they feel part of it and it’s great for the community because they can get involved.”
