West Norfolk’s mayor has been taken behind the scenes at a North Lynn care home.

Elizabeth Watson met staff and residents, and even joined in with some of the entertainment, when she visited the Briar House during an open day at the Losinga Road site.

The day, which staff said was intended to promote the home, included live music and entertainment for residents and visitors.

Manager Jodie Lewin, pictured above, back second left, said the mayor had also joined in with some of the dancing with residents.

She said: “She really enjoyed herself. She asked lots of questions.”

The home currently cares for 62 elderly residents on either a permanent or respite basis.
