A local care centre for dementia sufferers will open its doors this weekend for their annual summer fete.

Paternoster House Care Centre, Waltham Abbey, hopes to raise enough money to buy some digital tablets so residents can video call their relatives.

The day will offer entertainment such as a punch and judy show, a flea circus, a falcon show, ‘animaltastic’ as well as a variety of stalls selling items such as clothing, jewellery and teddies.

The event will run at the home on Paternoster Hill, Waltham Abbey between 11am-3pm and will be visited by Waltham Abbey Town Councillor, Ann Mitchell at 12pm.

Mental Health Administrator Deepeka Dayal, 31, said: “It will be a fun event for the community as well as the residents and their families, it will be nice for everyone to enjoy the fresh air, hopefully we will have nice weather.

“People are free to come along and even to bring their parents to see what a lovely family orientated home we offer.”
