An Edinburgh care home is gearing up to host its annual summer fete and is calling out for the local community to come along and get involved.

Bupa’s Victoria Manor care home in Leith will hold its end of summer celebrations on Saturday the 3rd of September and is encouraging members of the public to stop by and enjoy some fun in the sun with residents and staff.

Various activities and stalls will be set up for residents, guests and visitors, including a bake sale, face painting, a DIY photobooth, a coconut shy, a raffle and a wet sponge staff attack, and entertainment will be provided throughout the day by Dale Meeks from Emmerdale.

“It’s shaping up to be a lively and fun day, so we would encourage anyone keen to pay us a visit and get involved, as there really is something for everyone going on.”
