The fair, which is open to the public, will feature raffles, food and refreshments and even a very special visit from some farm animals - including a pony and some gorgeous pigs - from Ark Farm.

Barbara Ozga, who manages Magnolia Court, said: “Staff at Magnolia are dedicated to making sure that the home is a hub of the local community.

“I’m excited about welcoming new visitors and existing friends of the home to our summer fete, which I’m sure will be a real treat for everyone.”

Four residents will even be celebrating birthdays at the party - Philippa Greenwood will be 92 and Sylvia Lewis a spritely 94 while Mary Panayatou is turning 89 and Agnes Casey will be a youthful 84.

Magnolia Court is a residential care home which offers old-age and nursing care - including for those suffering with Dementia.
