It was the perfect summer afternoon for residents at an Ely care home as celebrations were held for their annual summer fete.

Lily House Care Home, in Lynn Road, held the event for residents, staff and family and friends, with all money raised going towards days out.

Up to 100 people attended to sit in the gardens, mingle and enjoy an array of treats on offer.

Kerry Clifton, home manager at Lily House, said: “We had an amazing turnout and it was a beautiful day. We would like to thank everyone for their continued support.

“We had a massive tombola, raffle and cream teas and lots of stalls, games and barbecue.
