AFTER a year of being apart from our loved ones, a care home in South Somerset decided to celebrate being able to see family and friends with a three-day tea party.

Staff and residents at Horton Cross Nursing Home, near Ilminster, held a tea party event from 2.30pm on Monday, June 7.

Luckily, the sun was shining, and so guests enjoyed spending time with their family members at the nursing home outside enjoying the weather.

Horton Cross Nursing Home is registered for 47 residents and specialises in personal care for older people, as well as having expertise in dementia care.
