Sheltered housing residents delighted judges at this year’s Buxton Carnival with their interpretation of a children’s story.

A team from Milton Court, in Broad Walk, Buxton, lead by residents Beryl Gill, decorated the garden outside of their home in the theme of Dr Dolittle – setting the scene using a variety of stuffed and model animals.

They were awarded first prize in the Best Dressed Nursing Home category of the carnival and were presented with a shield for their efforts.
