At Bethune Court care home in St Leonards on Sea the residents enjoy a special treat every two weeks - Hilde's Bar.

Chef Manager Hilde runs a social club in the lounge every fortnight which promises good company, a laugh, and a tipple of your favourite drink.

Chef Hilde said: "I love our fortnightly get together, a lot of the resident's enjoy a tipple and it is great being able to open my bar and catch up with everyone.

"We often hold themed events, for example we recently held a French-inspired afternoon including themed food and fancy dress.

"Being landlady of Hilde's Bar, and the great conversations it sparks, are often the highlight of my week."
