They joined over 70 Barchester care homes across the south of England, Jersey and the Isle of Wight via Zoom.

Westergate resident Wendy said: “It has been a lovely afternoon. It was wonderful to see everyone in all the other homes joining in. I really enjoyed answering the questions with my friends and the staff.”

General manager Paul Middleton Russell said: “Now that we’re starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel following what has been a year like no other for our residents and staff, we wanted to ensure our Easter celebrations were an extra special treat.
