KELTY care home residents have brought history to life by becoming their favourite heroes and heroines.

Benarty View care home took part in a UK-wide project which saw those living there explore some of the events and people who have made a mark on our past.

They were also encouraged to share their own knowledge and stories for a trip down memory lane.

The day was kicked off with an "extraordinary afternoon tea party" with residents dressing up as their favourite historical figures to see what kind of conversations people like Tutankhamun, Queen Victoria and Neil Armstrong might have if seated together around a table.

Resident Sylvia Heys, 84, said: "I’ve had a super time finding out about some of the people who have made history.

"I was Neil Armstrong at our afternoon tea and I told everyone what it was like to be the first person to stand on the Moon!"

Magic Moments Coordinators at the home also created memory boxes full of things to help spark memories and prompt discussions.

These included photographs and newspaper clippings, historical objects, poems, scents and music from different eras.

Benarty View was one of 100 Four Seasons Health Care Group care homes across the UK to take part in the event.

Steve Gardner, who heads up the Magic Moments Activities Programme for the Rowan Lea facility and for Lunardi Court in Cupar, said: "Our residents and team members have really enjoyed getting involved in this project, sharing their expertise and memories to bring history to life in a fun and entertaining way.

"There have been some wonderful conversations and it’s been a great opportunity to reminisce about the past."
