THE spirit of wartime Britain was brought back to life for a celebration at a care home.

Old folk from Hazeldene Nursing and Residential Home were transported back through the years for a party celebrating all things 1940s to cap off a summer full of celebrations.

Residents from the 60-bed home in Darnall, Sheffield, sang songs from the era, played games they enjoyed during their childhoods, and were treated to traditional grub they used to have served up six decades ago.

Care staff also donned 1940s-inspired costumes for the celebration.

The nostalgia trip proved popular for people living at Hazeldene, which cares for elderly men and women with dementia.

Friends and family were invited along to share the fun with relatives.

Home manager Evangelista Jana said: “The party was part of the home’s summer of celebrations which have included Africa Day, a Queen’s Jubilee Party and an Olympics sports day.”
