Westergate House Care Home, in Denmans Lane, Fontwell, was beautifully decorated with flowers and bunting for the occasion.

Activities co-ordinator Kay Vevers organised gifts of flowers and baskets of chocolates for all the residents, as well as a traditional high tea in the afternoon.

Kay said: “With indoor visits now possible, it was super to see relatives back in the home visiting their loved ones.
