Residents at a Wells care home celebrated the home’s tenth anniversary with a birthday party.
Dorrington House is home to 38 residents, mostly aged between 80 to 100.
Staff and residents marked a decade since the home was founded on May 11, the day before the real anniversary.
Home owner Lorraine Dorrington said: “I can’t believe the ten years have gone so quickly.
“We had a BBQ lunch for the residents in the lounge, a visit from the local school children, an entertainer and a buffet tea and birthday cake.
