Residents at The Manor House Residential home were served an ace by staff who laid on a Wimbledon-themed afternoon.

The Manor House Residential Home had an afternoon of Pimms and tennis, not forgetting the iconic strawberries and cream, so residents could still show their ‘love’ for the sport despite the tournament being cancelled this year.

Florence Dunbar, 91, lives at the home. Her daughter, Jackie said: “My mum looks like she had such a wonderful afternoon; she has always been a fan of watching sports and I know she would have loved this. Obviously living with dementia this is a personal touch for her.”

Leanne Hatch, home manager, said: “Many of our residents really enjoy watching Wimbledon on the television each year, so we wanted to plan an afternoon of fun to make up for them missing out.

“Everyone had a lovely afternoon, but I think the highlight of the day for most was the strawberries and cream. Oh, and the Pimms!”
