Residents and staff at Mallard Court Nursing Home in Bridlington recently celebrated a special ‘Willy Wonka’ day.

The event marked author Roald Dahl’s birthday and the residents chose to look at Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

A Mallard Court spokesman said: “We created our own mini Chocolate Factory and even had a visit from Willy Wonka himself and one of his Oompa Loompas.

“We had real Wonka Chocolate, a ‘Sweetie Tree’ along with Wonka Cupcakes and buns with a selection of edible mini Roald Dahl books atop. One resident said ‘oh my word it’s a real feast for the eyes’.

“We had lots of fun and Mallard Court was full of laughter. We put the movie on to watch together and lots of chocolate and sweet treats were eaten. We all had a fantastic Willy Wonka day.”
