CARE home residents in Cirencester have been celebrating Easter with quizzes, baby lambs and a special parade.

The festivities started early at Hunters Care Centre - which is situated in Cherrytree Lane, Cirencester - with an exciting visit from The Good Day Farm On Tour.

Care home residents got the chance to bottle feed week-old lambs and meet a range of other farm yard animals such a fluffy chicks.

The centre was also buzzing with various other activities such as baking, Easter bonnet making and the Easter bunny even popped in to say hello.

Residents also tucked into lots of hot cross buns and Easter cakes over the weekend, and enjoyed visits from family and friends.

Martha, a resident at Hunters, said: “It has been so lovely to join in with the Easter fun this week.

"Although, like every Easter, I think I’ve eaten too much chocolate!
