Images of Fenland landscapes designed to bring back memories for those living with dementia went on display at a care home.

Members of King's Lynn Photography Group and Wisbech Camera Club put on the display of landscapes, townscapes and wildlife at Downham Grange, in Downham Market, over the bank holiday weekend.

The home in Clackclose Road is run by Kingsley Healthcare, whose director of service quality Gary Foley said: 'Many of our residents used to live around the Fens and encouraging them to remember things from their past can raise self-esteem, lift their mood and improve communication.'

The winner of the £100 top prize for best image was Tracey Robinson, who submitted an evocative view of Bawsey ruins.
