Chloe Swarbick, home manager at Britten Court, said: "We had a fantastic time and it was brilliant to see so many of our neighbours come along for the party. Care Home Open Day is all about welcoming our local community."

This year's theme was chosen to celebrate the role of arts within care, which Care UK says is important in encouraging residents' self-expression.
