Care home residents enjoyed the streak of British sun at an annual fete to raise money for charity.
People living at Field House Care Home in Harpenden raised £100 for disabled transport charity the Barbara Bus Fund and children’s charity the Starlight Children’s Foundation.
The fete, which was held around the home, featured a dog show judged by residents where every pooch won a rosette.
A pony named April also made an appearance and there was a chair based exercise session for residents.
Bupa Home manager, April Parrott-Carter, said it was a fabulous afternoon: “It’s great to bring residents and the local community together and having the sunny weather on our side made all the difference.”
