RESIDENTS at a Headland care home have been getting into the Olympic spirit this week.

Staff at West View Lodge Care Home, in West View Road, organised a mini Olympics event for residents with a variety of sports from darts and dominos to bowling and chair basketball.

Theresa Lax, events co-ordinator at the home, said: “We’ve all been enjoying the Olympics so much and we wanted to give all the residents a chance to get involved.”

The events culminated in a medal ceremony, on Thursday morning, where the winner of each sport received a medal and certificate.
