Staff at a nursing home in Griston, near Watton, will be stepping back to the 1940s when it hosts a traditional summer fete.
Thorp House manager Kirsty Holden will be joined by colleagues in dressing up as war-time land girls for the event on Monday, May 29.
There will be stalls and games for the whole family in the gardens of the Kingsley Healthcare-run home.
Among the attractions will be a barbecue, tombola, book stall, coconut shy, hoopla and bowling.
Mrs Holden said: “We are hoping to give the fete added vintage appeal by arranging a display of old army vehicles from the 1940s.
