A resident at Baycroft Flitwick care home enjoyed a fun fair-themed birthday surprise in honour of her roots.
Vera - who turned 94 on Monday (February 22), used to own the nearby fun fair with her late husband - so the home’s activity coordinators organised a fair themed party.
It had a coconut shy, tin can alley, hoopla as well as traditional treats such as candy floss, toffee apples, mini doughnuts and popcorn.

They had also collected several old family pictures of when Vera was growing up so she could reminisce about the good old days.
Paul Buckle, interim general manager, said: “It was such a lovely afternoon and a great excuse to get all the residents together for a celebration, adhering to all the necessary Covid-19 precautions of course.
"Obviously, spirits have been fairly low within the home with families not being allowed to visit. However with a birthday party and the news that we will be able to accept one visit per resident soon, the mood in the home has definitely lifted."
