Ealing House Residential Care Home in Martham welcomed a host of spring animals on Tuesday, April 16, who enjoyed hours of affection.

Activities coordinator and senior carer, Elaine Southern, said it was great to put a smile on the faces of residents.

“We’re always thinking of new ways to entertain and have a laugh with residents and with Easter coming up we thought inviting spring animals into the home would do the trick,” she said.

“We all thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon and to see the big smiles on peoples faces was great.”
