Residents at Leslie Dunne House should have a good year of social activity ahead of them - after raising more than £700 at their Christmas fair on Saturday.

Carol Brotherton, one of the committee of six residents at the retirement homes in Fuzzens Walk, Dedworth who set the fair up said: “The money will fund residents’ Christmas party with entertainment, as well as activities throughout the year.”

The cake stall was particularly popular thanks to resident cake maker Andrea McGregor, 71, who does the honours every year.

Mrs Brotherton said: “When came to livehere here she said ‘I’ll do that for you’ and she has done so ever since.”
