To mark VE Day on May 7, staff at Ashdene Care Home in Eastgate dressed up in 1940s costume and served the residents with traditional 1940s fare of faggots or corn beef hash for lunch followed by bread and butter pudding.

Vocalist Tara Stafford-Allen was hired to perform songs from the era too.

The home’s manager Jilly Hunt said: “There was lots of singing along that evoked happy memories and some happy tears.

“We had fish and chips from Scoffer’s for tea followed by jelly and ice-cream.”
