A PATRIOTIC party has been held at The Winsor Nursing Home, in Minehead, to celebrate VE Day.

Flags were flown, traditional music was played and there was plenty of party food for residents and their families to enjoy.

The home’s manager, Pat Blackett, said: “VE Day is a very nostalgic time for our residents – it is a poignant reminder of loved ones lost and a time of reflection and reminiscence.

“We love to pull out all the stops and have a party to mark the occasion.”
