A nursing home was transported back to the wartime era for a vintage themed fete.
Thorp House nursing home in Griston, near Watton, hosted a Bank Holiday fete which was attended by families from the local area who joined residents, their relatives and staff for an afternoon of old-fashioned fun and entertainment.
The garden of the home was adorned with wartime sandbags and RAF flags – and there was even a model tank for children to admire.
Staff donned 1940s style outfits and they were joined for the occasion by vintage singer Frank Taylor, who went down a storm with both visitors and residents.
Among the attractions were stalls and games including a coconut shy, hoopla and face painting.

'More than 100 people from the village joined us and we raised nearly £500 which is being split between our residents' fund for additional activities and East Anglia's Children's Hospices.'
