Watching Easter chicks hatch is a wonder which never grows old as residents of Cumberworth Lodge care home in Grazlehound found out this week.

Delighted OAPs watched 11 chicks hatch in an incubator at the home.

Activities co-ordinator Yvonne Goodall, said: “We were trying to find something to promote and stimulate memories and the chicks were perfect. Memories come flooding back of the good old days when every family had chickens in their gardens.”
