A FENLAND nursing home hopes a Victorian market stall will help recreate a sense of history for residents.

The Gables Nursing Home at Eastrea has been chosen to take part in a Living History project. With help from relatives and friends from the local community, the home hopes to develop nostalgic features based on residents' experiences.

Residents and staff from The Gables have chosen to produce a Victorian market stall selling old-fashioned sweets and cards.

The home is calling on any history enthusiasts or volunteers who may like to get involved.
