Staff and residents alike got into the hula spirit as a care home held a special Hawaiian-themed event.
With the weather in Lowestoft resembling that of the tropical US state, the Dell care home and the adjoining Wellbeing Day Centre were decorated to look like a Hawaiian paradise.
Residents sipped on refreshing fruit cocktails and planted herbs which will be used in the cooking at the home, while a singer and accordion player provided entertainment.
Dancing went long into the afternoon as everyone enjoyed soaking up the summer sunshine.
The event was held as part of the care home and day centre's ongoing efforts to increase social interaction and improve self-esteem, as well as stimulate memories among residents.
