The weekly baking sessions are going down a treat at Howdon Care Centre in Wallsend.
Ruth Todd, Home Manager, said: “We made a variety of yummy cakes last week including mint chocolate cupcakes, and a jam and coconut sponge cake.

Wimbledon is adorning our TV screens at the moment, and it’s brought back some lovely memories for Jackie Burrows, the Deputy Manager at Willoughby Grange Care Home in Boston.
25 years ago, Jackie was one of 5 lucky competition winners who won a coaching session with tennis champion Jim Courier followed by a day of rest and relaxation at the exclusive David Lloyd Centre in Rayne’s Park London.
Jackie also won 2 complimentary tickets to the Wimbledon men’s final that year.
Jackie said: “It was a lovely day, and whenever Wimbledon is on it brings back fond memories for me. I’m a huge tennis fan, and that really was a dream come true. I wonder who’ll lift the Wimbledon trophy this year.”

It is said that singing is good for the soul. This was certainly the case at Doulton Court Care Home in Sutton-on-Sea.
Residents, relatives and the care team all enjoyed an afternoon of singing as they brought out the karaoke machine.
Joyce Turner, Home Manage, said: “Everyone enjoyed themselves. We heard songs from Elvis, Dame Vera Lynn and many more. Some of the care team brought out some recent tracks from the like of Little Mix and Justin Bieber, but it’s safe to say the old songs were definitely the best.”
