Home-baked goods, handicrafts, vegetables and floral displays from across the region were showcased in Navenby on Thursday as 100 care home residents came together to show their work.

The Orders of St John Care Trust (OSJCT), a not-for-profit care provider, hosted its fifth annual harvest festival at The Venue, in Navenby.

Residents from 15 county care homes displayed a selection of flower arrangements, preserves, vegetables, baking and crafts, with an award in each category.

OSJCT’s Anita Rudd said: “Last year’s event was fantastic, and this year’s was even better. The residents worked really hard on their displays.”
