RESIDENTS and staff at a Weston care home have been getting into the Olympic spirit by staging their own fun competitions.

Innisfree Residential Home in Severn Road were joined by friends and family to take part in a summer fete which feature skittles, welly-tossing, and egg-and-spoon races.

Staff also dressed in themed outfits, and entertainment from The Dave Stevens Set helped raise £250 towards home funds.
