Celebrations were under way at Barchester’s Wilsmere House care home, in Harrow Weald as residents and staff marked St. David’s Day.
The home was in high spirits as they celebrated the national day of Wales with Welsh flags/daffodil decorations, fancy dress, traditional Welsh dancing etc.
In honour of the traditional feast day and the country’s patron saint, residents and staff were treated to traditional Welsh food and drink.
Everyone in the Harrow Weald care home tucked in to welsh cakes, rarebit, crempogs, leek cawl, Barabrith and laverbread washed down with a nip of Penderyn whisky/welsh beer or cider.
