A DEMENTIA friendly screening of blockbuster musical Mamma Mia! was a hit with Pelton Grange care home residents in the North East.

More than a dozen residents and staff from Pelton Grange Care Home watched the movie at Pelton Community Centre, on Front Street, Pelton, near Chester-le-Street.

Popcorn, crisps, biscuits and tea were served throughout, with residents free to chat, get up and move around if they wished.

Many staff members attended on their day off with their children.
