RESIDENTS at a Bromsgrove care home were transported back to the 1960s for a special summer festival, writes Lucy Belfield.

The event was part of celebrations at Chandler Court for Care Home Open Week – a national scheme which encourages homes to open their doors to the local community.

“Our summertime festival offered a wonderful opportunity for us to connect with the community and show them what life at Chandler Court is all about.
