VIPs joined residents, staff and families at a National Cupcake Week celebration at a Skelmersdale care home.
The Mayor of West Lancashire Noel Delaney and Mayoress Bernadette Green were among guests at the event at Aaron Crest Care Home, in Skelmersdale.
They were joined by councillors Maureen Nixon, Claire Cooper and Ron Cooper.
Marj and Paul Ridgley from Skelmersdale Pulse, a non-profit organisation helping those with anxiety, depression, isolation and loneliness, also attended.
A giant cupcake, as well as smaller cakes, pastries and sandwiches were served during the home’s tea party.
The home’s administrator Emily Muscatelli and activities coordinator Alison Moore prepared the centerpiece chocolate cupcake, with white frosting, pink sprinkles, chocolate stars and edible flowers.
There was also singing and entertainment from George Windsor, who performed songs from two of the residents’ favourite musicians, Elvis and Cliff Richard.
Adrienne Ratcliffe, home manager at Aaron Crest Care Home, on Tanhouse Road, said: “Everyone had a wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed the cupcakes.
“A special thank you goes to the Mayor and Mayoress, as well as the councillors and representatives from Skelmersdale Pulse, for visiting the home.”
