A man – Christopher Eve – snatched the prize for best Easter bonnet in a contest at Tanglewood Cedar Falls Care Home in Spalding.

Christopher’s elegant Easter hat, made like those of his largely female rivals during regular craft activities, caught the eye of judge Trevor ‘Budgie’ Walton, who was also the entertainer at the home’s Easter party for all its residents, friends and family earlier this month.

A raffle at the party raised a stupendous £362 for future activities and outings.
