Care home residents are enjoying a trip down memory lane thanks to the delivery of some sweets.
But these are no ordinary sweets but a mixture of old-fashioned favourites to evoke memories of their younger days.
The initiative was driven by Nathaniel Woodward and the sweet shop branch he is shortly to open in Wisbech, and the town council.
Bags of sweets were hand delivered to local care homes by deputy mayor Andrew Lynn and Mr Woodward.
The council will now produce a video from some of the residents reflecting on the memories of their childhood and of the town.
“Each care home has confirmed they will try to capture memories shared by their residents,” said a town council spokesperson.
“Wisbech Town Council will collate the results into an online video for all of the care homes to share with their residents.”
