Staff and residents at Gable Court Nursing Home, in Roxy Avenue, Chadwell Heath, enjoyed entertainment from a singer as well as cakes and refreshments.

The event was attended by Redbridge’s deputy mayor Linda Huggett.

The home’s activity coordinator, Michele Labonne, said: “Because of the rain we had to rush back and put the tables in the lounge, but we [still] had a lovely time.

“Everybody enjoyed themselves and the residents were happy with the entertainer. It was a good afternoon.”
