A care home in Rackheath has opened its doors to the local community for a retro-themed event.
Visitors and residents of Ashfields care home were invited to enjoy a day of 60s and 70s music, a barbecue, face painting and coffee on April 21.
They were also given the chance to look around the facility and meet the staff.
Ben Rogers, the care home's general manager, said: 'It was lovely welcoming new visitors and existing friends of the home to our open day on Saturday, the weather was wonderful, and residents and staff alike had a wonderful time.
'For anyone who wasn't able to make it, our doors are always open for a tea and a tour.'
