They also celebrated with a themed dining experience and tucked into a delicious Easter meal prepared by the home’s hospitality team.

General manager Paula Colman said: “As always, we’ve all been looking forward to Easter.

“It’s such a lovely time of year – the residents love all the colourful Easter eggs and a special visit from the Easter Bunny who delivers the chocolate treats for them all. It’s really been an eggs-cellent few days.”

Margaret, a resident at Hickathrift House, said: “It has been so lovely to spend time with our families this Easter, though, like every Easter, I think I’ve eaten too much chocolate.

“It was so wonderful to see everyone go to so much effort. I enjoyed making the Easter bonnets and showing my son the following day.”
