Dozens of people enjoyed Norfolk food and craft at an inaugural nursing home fair.

The event at Heron Lodge Nursing Home on Norwich Road, Wroxham, attracted more than 200 people.

Alison Fallowfield, manager of the Kingsley Healthcare-run home, said: 'We want to make this an annual event for the whole community.

'It was great to welcome so many local people for the first time here and our residents and their families thoroughly enjoyed the day. We were blessed by fantastic weather.'
