Mantles Court Care Home welcomed its first residents last week with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Iris and Ernest were the first to take residence in the care home in Biggleswade, and were met with claps and cheers from the Mantles Court team.

After cutting a ceremonial ribbon, the new residents and their families toasted the occasion with a glass of bubbly and a slice of cake made by the home's chef.
