A CARE home has opened its doors to the public on a sunny summer’s day as part of a national event.

Residents at Cornelius House, Fishbourne were serenaded by a pianist as they took part in activities.

The residents were joined by Cllr Martyn Bell, mayor John Hughes and his wife Cherry, who admired the flower decorations.

Manager Pam Venus said: “It went really well. We had tea and cake and a chap who is moving into the house next door came and played the piano.

“It was part of the National Care Home Open Day which started last year.

“We thought we would try it out. We could have done with a few more people visiting, but maybe we will try again next year. It is just to help people see we are not a stuffy care home.

“We had lots of activities and a couple of the men were painting little birdhouses.”

Other residents spent the day painting pictures.
