Heron Court, part of Heron House, in March, also welcomed celebrated banjo player Sean Moyses, from Wisbech, who performed a memorable concert.

CJ’s Birds of Prey brought along some owls, including a three week old baby barn owl, which the residents were allowed to hold.

Care worker Rachel Clarke said: “It was a very popular event and the residents thoroughly enjoyed it.”

Heron Court is a purpose built care home which provides nursing and social care for the frail and mentally infirm elderly.
