Attleborough care home stages ‘Antiques Roadshow’ event

Staff and residents at an Attleborough care home welcomed more than 40 people to their first 'Antiques Roadshow' event.

A team of valuers from Clover Home Interiors in Attleborough and The Gold Shop in Diss were on hand to value a wide range of items including paintings, crockery, jewellery and silver pieces at Brooklyn House Care Home on Tuesday.

Home residents, relatives and members of the local community queued up clutching their prized possessions in the hope of the valuers discovering a hidden gem, which was also attended by Attleborough mayor Karen Pettitt.

Whilst no one received that life changing valuation, the tombola and cake stall ensured everyone was able to take something away with them, said Brooklyn House manager Sarah Taylor.

She added: 'The day was a real success and it was great that so many people from the local community came along to support us. Our residents and their relatives loved seeing the valuers in action. Everyone who attended had such a good day that we are already looking into making it a regular event.'

Brooklyn House provides care for up to 40 elderly people and is run by family-owned Caring Homes Group.
