Families and friends will sow seeds in care home's new memorial garden.
A nursing home in Downham Market will hold a ceremony to remember past residents and unveil memorial plaque.
The event will be held at the Downham Grange care home on Saturday, July 20 at 2:30pm.
Family and friends of past residents will write personal messages to their loved ones and plant forget-me-not flower seeds and rose bushed in the home's new memorial garden.
Tracy Nicholls, the home's activities coordinator, said: "All the staff at Downham Grange thought a memorial day would be a lovely idea to keep alive the memory of our past residents.
