Chichester District Council vice-chairman Norma Graves and her husband Brian opened the event and judged the dog show.

There were also craft stalls, sideshows and entertainment by The Simpson Duo.

Dixon Xavier, manager, said: “Everyone was delighted that they opened the fête and stayed to talk to the residents at Kings Lodge. It was also attended by the managing director of LRH Homes, Mr Jag Grewal and his wife Pam.

“It has been a great year for Kings Lodge with a good CQC report. Everybody really enjoyed the day and thanks to everyone’s contributions, the fête managed to raise £1,500, which will be used to towards getting a minibus for the home.

“We are looking forward to getting a minibus before next summer so we can take our resident out to local attractions.”
