Relatives, friends and members of the local community joined residents and staff from the family-owned care home in Bampton, for an afternoon of fun with entertainment and beach games for all ages and a raffle raising over £900 for the home’s residents’ fund.
The seaside theme was complemented by a punch and judy show, traditional ice-cream and homemade lemonade, donkeys and live entertainment from the Wantage Male Voice Choir.
Local butcher Patrick Stainge fed hungry guests with a tasty BBQ and Bernard Jones filled the garden with an array of seaside tunes with his traditional organ playing.
Rosebank Care Home owner Jane Roberts said: “It was so lovely to see so many people come and support our annual fete this year, creating a memorable afternoon for our residents.
“The theme was suggested at a residents meeting in December that we should bring the seaside to the home, so everyone had the opportunity to relive happy memories.”
