Senior citizens poured in to Bupa Windsor Park Care Home to take part in the combined rest-home games.

The Gore rest-home hosted Ribbonwood Country Home, Parata Residence for the Elderly, Wyndham and Districts Community rest-home, Resthaven Village and Windsor Park residents at the fun-filled afternoon on Thursday.

Competitors dressed in green to mark St Patrick’s Day and took part in a variety of games.

Windsor Park diversional therapist Karen Bray said the games included target mat, quoits, balloon tennis, bocce and snakes and ladders.

The games were played in 10-minute rounds, she said.trace affiliate linkBoots
