YORKSHIRE DAY celebrations reached the most northerly borders of the county, as Middlesbrough care home residents enjoyed cricket and a traditional lunch.

The Gables Care Home, in Middlesbrough, served up local sausages and Yorkshire puddings followed by a few innings.

 

Dodging the showers, 81-year-old resident Gordon Clarke hit three boundaries, before being bowled out by activities coordinator Cath Taylor.

 

A break for adverse weather saw the residents, staff and visitors retire to the pavilion for a cream tea.

Cath said: “We wanted to celebrate Yorkshire Day with the rest of the county.

 

“We knew the residents would enjoy a game of cricket on a summer’s afternoon, as well as a traditional lunch and cream tea after the action. Everyone had a great time.”
