A care home in Sudbury held an Easter party so that members of the public could find out more about its thriving community spirit.

Residents, families and visitors all enjoyed a Mad Hatters-themed tea party at

St Josephs Care Home on The Croft in Sudbury last Tuesday.

The event started at 2.30pm with everyone enjoying an afternoon tea, which was all prepared by the in­-house chef.

Activity co­ordinator, Trudy Smart, organised the afternoon with lots of visitors attending a raffle and enjoying entertainment by the Frederick Douglas School of Performing Arts, all dressed as characters from the Alice in Wonderland fairy tale.

Penny Ranson, care home manager said: “We know the older people we work with

have a positive impact on community life in St Josephs and enjoy living here.

“We had our tea party event so that members of the local community can look round our home and speak to our residents to hear for themselves how happy a place this is to live and about the great community spirit we have here.”
