Staff at Thorp House nursing home in Griston, near Watton, dressed up as their favourite book characters.

This included activities coordinator Jade Smith as Alice and Kirsty Holden, home manager, as the Queen of Hearts from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Mrs Holden, manager of the home, said: 'We make every day fun here and my staff and our residents all enter into the spirit of things.'

The Kingsley Healthcare run home is busy organising a fete for Monday, May 29.

Proceeds from the fete will be split between the residents' fund, which pays for outings, and the Alzheimer's Society.
