RESIDENTS at a Billericay care home were given a taste of Spain when a Flamenco dancer popped in to entertain them.

Sandra La Espuelita performed at a tea party which was celebrating the homes spruced up gardens.

A colourful haven has been created at Admiral Court, in Outwood Common Road, Billericay, as part of a nationwide gardening competition at all Hallmark Care Homes.

Judges from Thrive, a national charity which promotes the therapeutic benefits of gardening, visited the home to admire their green-fingered handiwork.
