A day to celebrate the dedication of our Armed Forces and their sacrifice past, present and future was held in Hartlepool.
Residents, staff and guests from the local community enjoyed a day activities at the Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust Retirement Village at Hartsfields in Hartlepool.
Its catering team put together a themed menu including Bully Beef pie and Spam fritters, with the restaurant decked out with camouflage netting, Union flags and wartime memorabilia provided by Alison Fox of Puddle Ducks in the town and Ken Fox.
The party also got the chance to try their skills in a shooting gallery using a Nerf gun.
The event also helped raise funds for Help for Heroes, with £260 collected.
The evening was rounded off by a range of sing along favourites provided by a Eric Leighton, a resident.
Tony Kelly, chef manager of the village, said: “Most importantly of all, an enjoyable day was had by all, many of who had served the country well in the past.
“Memories are priceless.
“We are planning more of these events in the Stag Restaurant at Hartsfields in the future.”
