The Henry Cornish Care Centre held a care home open day with tea and cakes and plenty of music serenaded by Service Personnel from RAF Brize Norton.
Residents and service personnel chatted over cups of tea and slices of cake ahead of Armed Forces Day, an annual event celebrated in late June to commemorate the service of men and women in the British Armed Forces.
"We have 50 residents in our home ranging from 80-100 years old. Many have connections with the war time. We have gentlemen that were in National Service and ladies who were in the Land Army. This has been an excellent opportunity for our residents to meet current serving personnel. It's been great for the residents to build relationships and hear the stories of the modern day RAF."

"It was a great opportunity to meet the residents at Henry Cornish Care Centre, learn about their life stories and to tell them more about RAF Brize Norton. We have definitely made new friendships from across generations."
