Rugby Mayor Sally Bragg was among the guests on the day.

Jo Sawyer, activities co-ordinator, said everyone enjoyed the fete.

“We had a cracking day with lots of our residents out and enjoying themselves including one lady who has been very poorly in hospital for the last nine weeks. She found the strength to come to our fete with her family.

“Not only did she smile but she also clapped along to our band.”

Violetta Baesu, general manager, said: “I would like to personally thank the mayor for attending our fete, all our crafters and stall holders, both residents, staff and family members had a wonderful time dancing to our Hillbilly band and enjoying the barbecue.”
