Fairy tale

Fairy tale: Panto season was extended at a Dorset dementia care home as residents and staff staged their own version of Beauty and the Beast.  Weeks of rehearsals, making props and sourcing costumes culminated in the performance at Colten Care’s Fernhill home in Longham. Resident Patrick Ryan is pictured (right) with fellow cast members, who were (from left) staff members Lexie Gibson, Jess Sears Dawson, Mirren Lloyd and Ann Marie Knight.
