Staff and residents at the home, on Sicey Avenue, Shiregreen, donned their finest 1940s attire with many dressing as volunteers from the Women’s Land Army.

Singer Patricia Lynne Moore performed music from the era.

Manager Kerry Jones said: “It was a brilliant day, everyone really enjoyed it. There was a singer and we had lots of food to eat from the 1940s. All the residents had ration books and there was memorabilia on display.”

The public were also invited to drop in and join the fun. For National Care Home Open Day care homes across the country open their doors to help forge lasting links with communities.
