Residents and staff at Firth House, Selby held a service for Remembrance Day to pay their respects and remember those who lost their lives in World War One.

This year marks 100 years since the end of the Great War and Firth House wanted to honour this milestone by paying their respects to the brave men and women who lost their lives. They held a minute's silence and released balloons to mark the occasion.

Care home manager, Pearl Millen said: "Firth House always makes an effort to remember those that lost their lives in this conflict and many of our residents were directly affected by those losses. We honoured the lives through the balloon launch and have also been taking part in activities throughout the week such as singing war time songs".
