Barbecue food, floral garlands and an appearance by Elvis awaited tenants at a party held at a Burwell extra care scheme.
Sanctuary’s Ness Court, in Baker Drive, held the Hawaiian-themed event as a way to bring the residents closer to their neighbours at the scheme.
Residents enjoyed a range of games and had the opportunity to win raffle prizes donated by staff.
Sanctuary employees John Bird and John Knappett served up a variety of meat treats from the scheme’s barbecue, while staff handed out floral garlands to residents and other colleagues.
Elvis tribute act Ian Colson performed a number of The King’s hits, finishing with The Wonder of You.
