A NETHERTON care home welcomed unusual guests last week as part of a family fun day.

St Nicholas' Nursing Home invited ponies from Shy Lowen Horse and Pony Sanctuary to its facility much to the delight of children who took full advantage of the opportunity to enjoy a ride.

It was part of an event to raise money for the residents currently living in the accommodation and staff also put on stalls and games for guests.

Bootle charity Sefton OPERA also attended to give the residents treatment therapy free of charge.

A member of staff at the nursing home, Sharon Constive, said: “A good day was had by all and we would like to thank Sefton OPERA for coming to help to relieve the stress and strain of the residents and families as well as people of Netherton.

”We would liketo also thank Shy Lowen for bringing ponies for rides for the young children who attended. The money raised will be put to good use for residents in the home for extra treats for them.“
